DUMFRIES HOUSE

The partnership with Dumfries House, a Scottish Country House and Estate with a developing education centre, set in East Ayrshire, provides support for the joint educational programme of Dumfries House and UWC Dilijan College. It involves two main projects: the restoration of one of the estate buildings and a unique educational programme.

THE DILIJAN BUILDING AT THE DUMFRIES HOUSE EDUCATIONAL CENTRE

The project to restore the Georgian Palladian Mansion of Dumfries House and the estate is under the patronage of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales or as he is known in Scotland His Royal Highness The Prince Charles, the Duke of Rothesay. The project not only restored the historic building, but also transformed the estate into an educational centre of excellence. Scholae Mundi understands that it is vital to contribute to the development of educational projects around the world and to build links between different educational institutions, allowing students from various countries to take advantage of receiving a global, multi-faceted education while building close personal relationships from a young age.

UWC DILIJAN COLLEGE-DUMFRIES HOUSE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME

The Scholae Mundi-Dumfries House partnership allows for a period of ten years annual visits by 48 students from UWC Dilijan College and other Armenian schools to participate in educational activities at Dumfries House.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

ontrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
