Mr Roy Cowgill

Roy Cowgill

It is with great sadness and deep shock that we learnt today of the unexpected passing of Mr Roy Cowgill after a short illness.
Mr Cowgill was a highly respected and loved teacher and member of staff. He was promoted to Durban High School as Senior Assistant in the Biology Department, teaching Biology and General Science in 1978.

In 1994, he was promoted to Head of Department in Biology and retired in 1997. He then returned to Durban High School in 2011 to teach Life Sciences and Natural Sciences. Not only was he a wonderful teacher but he was also involved in many co-curricular activities, especially the Outdoor Society. He took many boys to various areas of KZN on numerous educational tours.
Mr Cowgill had a deep love of the environment and is a published author of three books on the Birds of KZN. He was an Honorary Officer with the KZN Wildlife and a member of the Mitchell Park Trust. He was involved in many other activities, including Scouting, Life Line, and other projects.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones. His passing is a huge loss to our School and he will be greatly missed by the Durban High School family.
Deo Fretus, Roy!
