Dear Parents/Guardians

“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”
Aldous Huxley

You may have picked up on a recurring theme on the quotes I have been using at the beginning of each weekly letter: childhood. As the final two weeks unfold, I am reminded EVERYDAY what a privilege it is to be at Clifton: whether a child, parent or staff member. One cannot put a price on the magic of childhood that Clifton offers our children.

The number of Old Cliftonians visiting Clifton in recent weeks and months has seen a significant increase – there is an obvious message in that!

Our Grade 1s and 5s are away on trips – I know that they will be back with many stories to tell, along with memories made. The voluntary Hike to the Berg last weekend, led by Mrs Cyndi Jonker reinforces what we get right here at Clifton; providing opportunities to be adventurous, curious, willing to take a risk… within a safe environment.

I wish our Grade 7s well as they begin their Review Week assessments.
