The strange murder of 4 year old Isabelle Cowley 


Gordonstoun is the founding member of Round Square, a world-wide association of schools which share a commitment beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility. There are 122 member schools all of which share the same ethos and philosophies founded by Kurt Hahn.

History  of Round Square

After fleeing Germany from the Nazis in 1933, former founder and Headmaster of Salem School in Germany, Kurt Hahn established Gordonstoun and continued educating boys with the principles he had begun at Salem. Hahn had a vision that there should be a network of “British Salem Schools” across the world each spreading its influence beyond the school boundaries in it is own area.

In 1954 Jocelin Winthrop Young, headmaster of Anavryta School in Greece and former pupil of Kurt Hahn, had been involved in a project organised by Salem to reconstruct Argostoli in the Iionian Islands following a great earthquake. Such had been the success of this project that he considered the idea of founding a permanent association of schools, started variously by Hahn, his colleagues or pupils, to provide aid projects for those in need. In 1962/3 he visited ten of these schools to explain the plan which would include an annual conference to discuss and co-ordinate future projects.

In June 1966, to mark the occasion of Hahn’s 80th birthday, friends and acquaintances from all over the world were invited to meet at Salem. As well as the customary celebrations they held a meeting with the main item on the Agenda a proposal to found the “Hahn Schools Conference”. The first meeting was held a year later in 1967 at Gordonstoun and it was here that the name was changed to “Round Square Conference” after the famous building of the same name on the Gordonstoun campus. Initially attended only by Headmasters and Governors, in 1974 pupils were invited for the first time and increasingly played a part in deciding the theme for the conference and organising discussions. The name soon became simply Round Square and in 1980 the Round Square International Service   https://archive.is/HWReD  (RSIS) was created to promote and organise overseas voluntary service projects. http://www.gordonstoun.org.uk/round-square  https://archive.is/7jd2J

Solomon’s knot https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solomon%27s_knot

Solomon’s Knot appears on tombstones and mausoleums in Jewish graveyards and catacombs in many nations. In this context, Solomon’s Knot is currently interpreted to symbolize eternity.
In Latin, this configuration was sometimes known as sigillum Salomonis, meaning literally “seal of Solomon”. It was associated with the Biblical monarch Solomon because of his reputation for wisdom and knowledge (and in some legends, his occult powers). This phrase is usually rendered into English as “Solomon’s knot”, since “seal of Solomon” has other conflicting meanings (often referring to either a Star of David or pentagram). In the study of ancient mosaics, the Solomon’s knot is often known as a “guilloche knot” or “duplex knot”, while a Solomon’s knot in the center of a decorative configuration of four curving arcs is known as a “pelta-swastika” (where pelta is Latin for “shield”).
