Norah Katherine Nares (1891-1979)

The only daughter of William Grant Nares, Norah was born in 1891.  She never married but we recently learned from an ex-pupil, that she owned and ran the "Clifton House Kindergarten" in Farnborough, Hants at least during the early '50s when this pupil was one of her grateful students!

She owned and ran the school, using the first floor as a classroom for the dozen or so pupils, many of whom went on to attend the Salesian College situated opposite her establishment.  She was known to have taken in Tibetan children, orphaned during the "uprising", one of whom can be seen in the school group photo below.

She died on 3rd Feb 1979.
