My daughter, Olivia, is a boarder in Year 7. Prior to her attending Clayfield College she has always attended a small school in western Queensland, where I (as a parent) have known all of her teachers personally and have had much involvement with all aspects of her schooling. Sending your child away is a daunting experience. Not knowing the staff, or understanding the new routines and expectations, and not being there to support my daughter to the extent that I have in the past is at times a little overwhelming for me. Your staff should be commended on their actions. Every email, call and letter is received with much gratitude. It all helps make this adjustment period so much easier on us all."
We first came to Clayfield College in 2013. We chose Clayfield because we wanted the very best, well rounded and supportive education for our children. My husband and I believed, and still do, that how a child commences their education is just as important as how they should finish their education. Aim high! My children, all 3 of them have amazed, delighted and astounded us with the knowledge they have gained and the confidence they display each and every day at Clayfield. Aside from the excellent academic and developmental milestones our children have achieved, it is the extra care, effort and genuine dedication each and every Teacher has bestowed upon our children, and every child at Clayfield."
