Dear Parents/Guardians

“If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.”
Tom Stoppard

I have been reminded again over the past few days of what we “get right” at Clifton Notties. Seeing children climb trees, riding horses on the campus, hearing children spontaneously start playing the marimbas in the Chapel over the weekend – that is what we are about…ensuring that the magic of childhood is never lost . It is what we believe in and what we are about.

I acknowledge that I am in reflective mode. Although the photos of the iconic maple tree taken outside my office a few hours ago are a real-life representation of the changing seasons, the air is decidedly “nippier” in the mornings,… they are also reflective of the passing of time. It is, in some ways, incomprehensible to think that the end of term is a mere three weeks away. Chapters are starting and ending.
