“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 excited about learning so that they get so much knowledge. 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 and learning is the most exciting thing around.”
– Founding Headmaster, David Black, 1948
