John Cowley taught religion to me in 1979 - every day we used to pray in class - he would always ask if the students wanted to pray for anyone special. As my mother was sick I used to ask the class to pray for her - one day he asked me if she was getting better and all I could do was shake my head. She died at Christmas 1979 - I always remember speaking to John at the start of the new term - he was very considerate and kind at a sad time in my life. Thanks John - and best wishes. V
He appreciates alot of favours that you do for him, Always wearing absurd colored cloths though..
cunning but useless. does little to help slow learners.
a bit of joke...but you could not dislike him, always good to have a class with him, felt like respite.
I have fond memories of Crowley chasing me out of the sheds for seeing me smoking - a nice guy
lLIKE A CHARACTER OUT OF A 1960S FILM.GOOD GUY AND VERY EASY TO APPROACH.GOOD TEACHER FOR THE REMEDIAL CLASSES.PROBABLY HAS THE HARDEST JOB IN THE SCHOOL.
