Why Solving Real World Problems are Left to 6 – 10 Year Olds!

During a recent talk to our pupils on Rhino conservation, Dr Andrew Venter (Wildlands Trust) spoke of the sad reality that there are only 2 Northern White Rhino’s left in the world … and they are both female.  At the close he asked if anyone had any questions, to which Cowan House pupil Lily Perry (age 8) replied, ‘Did they think to take blood from the last male before he died so his DNA could be used for IVF?’

Please join us for an insightful evening to learn about how a child’s school curriculum, between the age of 6 and 10, will affect their ability to adapt to changes, for life.
