FROM THE EXECUTIVE HEADMASTER

Dear Members of the Clifton Community,
As a country and community, as well as a school community, we have faced various unique challenges as we confront the implications of the coronavirus pandemic and the national lockdown. We have had to deal with the very real and practical challenges of closing the school in March, getting the online system up and running effectively, as well as coping with the practical and emotional issues around the lockdown in the community and home environment.

Dear Parents
What does the future hold? There are many levels to this question. What does the future hold for the world – in a time of pandemics, crashing oil prices, missions to Mars and arguments about who should be the next James Bond? What does the future hold for South Africa – as I write this, on a dying laptop, in a hot office during load shedding, still getting notifications on my phone about the latest local series on Netflix?

Dear Parents
Mrs Megan de Beyer launched her new book “How to Raise a Man: The modern mother’s guide to parenting her teenage son” at a book launch in the Sutcliffe Theatre on Monday night. The launch took the form of an interview with Jane Linley-Thomas of East Coast Radio, and whilst the interview, and Megan’s responses were aimed at mothers, there was certainly much that was useful for the dads in the audience – even dads of “ex-teenage” sons like myself!
