Kindergarten Rhythm and Rhyme Time 2016

The school auditorium was transformed into the magical world of music – the universal language that connects people. As the boys of Upper Kindergarten took stage, one class at a time, they had the audience consisting of grandparents, parents and siblings riveted with their enthralling and scintillating performance that touched every heart.

The tiny tots of the Kindergarten got the audience to tap their feet and savour the electrifying spirit.  Songs by Dire Straits, Bruno Mars, One Direction and Madonna were just some of the songs rendered by our young Cottonians.

At Bishop Cottons, we instil the love for music at an early age. Music forms an integral part of our curriculum with songs sung every morning at assembly time. In the words of Plato – “Music and Rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”.

Kindergarten Colour Day 2017

Childhood is the most beautiful of all life’s seasons.

A little splash of colour can brighten up the day and when it’s Colour Day in the Kindergarten Block, the day is truly kaleidoscopic.

This year Colour Day was celebrated in two phases – one when the boys dipped their tiny palms in a tray of paints and made hand impressions on the front of their very own personalized aprons and the second when they splashed with gay abandon on the lawns of the block using various colours of paint and a sponge cut-out.

Colour Day gives us the opportunity to take the boys into a magical world where colours come alive. Each colour so unique and special in making the world we live in so beautiful – Just like each little boy in our care, unique and so very special.
