Principal's message


Welcome to Clifford International School! 


Our school is committed to "Face the Modernization, Face the World, Face the Future" as our operating principles.


I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I graduated from the University Of Manitoba and began my teaching career in the city of Winnipeg in 1983. I also lived in Hong Kong for 11 years and worked as a high school administrator. Prior to coming to China I was also a principal at a K-8 school in Canada.


I'm truly enjoying living in China and working at Clifford International School. Another year is upon us and I'm very much looking forward to my new role as high school principal.  I feel very fortunate to be working with such a talented and dedicated group of international educators here at CIS. 


CIS has been affiliated with the Canadian Province of Manitoba for 16 years. This affiliation has developed into a strong and trustworthy partnership. The Manitoba curriculum has helped prepare many students in the Clifford Estates community for post secondary education and the work force. CIS has also provided a quality international educational experience to many students from Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, India, Korea, and Russia. To learn more about the K-12 International and Manitoba curriculum please visit the Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning website at 


Our graduates study abroad at many universities throughout the world, including Canada, Asia, Europe, Hong Kong, and the United States. 


I encourage parents to contact our guidance office and book an appointment with our guidance counsellor, and begin the university application process with their child.


Together we can help your child reach their full potential and grow into a capable and confident person.
