The BIFS and GIFS schools both provide a bus service from Geoje/Okpo to their respective schools.

Hi. It seems as if my older kids will have to go on the bus from Geoje to Busan. I have a six year old? Any suggestions what to do with him? He is so young to travel on a bus over an hour twice per day? Okpo too full? anyone else in the same position? THANK FOR ANY INPUT

Hi Our children are 7,5 and 2. It has taken 6 weeks (we started the enrolment process in Australia) but our oldest starts at ISK in November. Our 5 year old is 2nd on the list. He was 9th 6 weeks ago. We are sending him to Tumbland in opko until his placement comes through. He is collected by bus from our apartment daily. (We are also a Samsung employed family) The waiting list seems to move quickly. I was worried about this when we arrived. We were given the option to send the children to Busan international school but I didn't want them to have the long commute. I'm glad I waited. I emailed and called the school frequently to ask what number on the list they were. Hope you get some answers.

Thank you for your input. They will all go to GIFS together. It seems to have been the best option for all three of them to be in the same school. It looks like a good one too.

Just wondering where you live by the Samsung facility? My husband may be taking a job there next summer and we have a 4, 10,11 year old. Just wondering where are nice places to live near the Samsung facility and how long is the bus ride to GIFS?

Why can't I find the time it takes by bus from BIFS to Geoje? It sounds painful. Any idea on how long the commute is ?

Maybe an idea to ask the bus company.
