Singapore and Hong Kong visit 2023
Monday, June 19
The Head Master and Jeremy Pickles, Acting OC Secretary, undertook a 'whistle stop' tour of the region in June. They had last visited in 2018 (before Covid) and the HM was anxious to re engage with the many OCs and parents out there, to thank them for their continued support of the school.
The warmth towards Clifton was underlined by the wonderful response to the invitations.
Starting in Singapore, they hosted a drinks reception on the rooftop Lantern Bar of the Fullerton Hotel overlooking the bay. Despite BA misplacing their luggage, they arrived at the venue with minutes to spare before our guests arrived. 26 OCs and parents attended the event
The next day they flew to Hong Kong and hosted a reception in the British Consulate building in Admiralty. 78 OCs and parents attended.
Record numbers for both events. They were able to rekindle old friendships and meet many new faces. Outside of the events they met prospective parents and a former parent who flew over from Shanghai just to say thank you.
Special thanks to our OC reps Tom Streatfeild- James (Singapore) and Vincent Law (Hong Kong) for their help in organising the tour.
