Principal's Message

Welcome to Clifford School!


As a newcomer to Guangzhou I am impressed with the facilities, staff and students at CIS.


Clifford International School is committed to the long-term educational development of students. To facilitate this the school has a long-standing affiliation with the Province of Manitoba (Canada), Department of Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning.  Our western staff, at Clifford International School, are excited to provide our students with an excellent Western education service in the Guangzhou (Panyu) setting.  


At Clifford International School we strive to ensure our students will be prepared for, and have global access to, post-secondary facilities.  Our beneficial partnership with Manitoba (Canada) ensures that Clifford staff can access and implement Manitoba’s curriculum and provide Western expertise with relevant, engaging, and a worthy education experience that prepares our students for lifelong learning.


The teaching team at Clifford International School recognizes the need to promote student commitment to learning, to expose children to diverse perspectives in all areas of study, expand individual experiences, and provide opportunities for students to share their questions and thoughts with others.  As international educators, who respect the Clifford faculty and communities, our goal is to ensure we deliver high quality educational instruction to our students.


I grew up in Pictou, Nova Scotia Canada where I spent the majority of my career. I received my Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education and Post-Baccalaureate degrees from three Nova Scotia Universities. I am a trained and experienced teacher and administrator. I taught and administered schools for over 36 years in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia, all in Canada, and in Shenzhen, Zhengzhou and Luoyang schools in China.


I am looking forward to being the Elementary Principal and working with the great staff, fine students, and caring parents at Clifford International School this coming year.
