‘I am going to open my own school and make it interesting, make it fun. I am going to make them (the pupils) want to learn so you can’t stop them. I want them to get so excited about learning that they don’t want to stop. I know that once they know something, it leads to wanting something else. They must learn to express themselves and find out things for themselves. They must know that living is the most exciting thing around.’ David Black Cowan House Founder, 1948 The corridors of Cowan House still resonate with the values instilled by the school’s founding principal – echoing a sense of fun, curiosity and discovery. It is our responsibility to help boys and girls develop a real love of learning. In a world which is becoming increasingly more complex and superficial, where inspiration is becoming more theoretical and learning is often sterile from an early age, we are tremendously proud of the healthy balance we enjoy at Cowan House. We know that each child is a unique individual, not an academic statistic but a young person bursting with potential and deserving the best possible opportunities. By attending Cowan House, boys and girls […]
