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.

It is not only lessons that matter but the ideals of humanity, compassion and caring and kindness to be true in spirit. To invest these qualities amongst our students and to share the Christmas Cheer with underprivileged Bishop Cottons’ organized the Fellowship Lunch one such event without which our calendar year remains incomplete.
On the 15th December,2013 the office bearers, prefects and the NSS visited various homes for the needy and various other institutions that take care of the less fortunate people.
The interaction that followed was a memorable experience for all, seeing the children full of joy, the elderly youthful in spirit and the disabled so complete in determination kindles a light of hope in our hearts.
As we returned, we contemplated the events of the past few hours, our determination to make this world a better place to live in was stronger than ever.Some Related Post.

On Saturday, June 29, 2012, our school paid homage to our longest serving principal, Canon William Elphick, by inaugurating the Canon Elphick Memorial Centre. The building will serve as an academic block for the students of class 12.
The inauguration, aptly held on St. Peter’s day, was graced by the presence of Governor HR Bharadwaj, as chief guest, Gerry Arathoon, CEO and Secretary of the ICSE board, and Dr. Roger Gayakwad, Chief Secretary, National Church Committee. The event began with a short address from Principal John Zachariah, who described the contribution of Canon Elphick to the school.
This was followed by a speech from Governor HR Bharadwaj. Speaking on the closure of a number of reputed schools across India, he expressed his dismay at the rarity of quality education these days. He went on to say that Karnataka had always been a beacon of excellence with regard to education and hoped that many more quality schools would come up in the state.
The principal and dignitaries soon walked towards the entrance of the Canon Elphick Memorial Centre, where Governor HR Bharadwaj cut the ribbon to inaugurate the building, adding another gem to the school’s impressive infrastructure.Some Related Post.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”- Jawaharlal Nehru
The midterm examination season had barely culminated when anxiety for the results was mitigated into epitome of excitement for 82 students as they made preparations to visit the United States of America for an educational and recreational excursion. The main purpose of the trip was to attend a five day robotics course at Kennedy Space Centre, Orlando, Florida.
After a long enervating flight of 16 hours from Mumbai we finally reached America where the next morning after a sumptuous breakfast we made our way to one of the momentous places of NASA- Kennedy Space Complex. Having enjoyed the magnificent infrastructure and touring the place, we began our training program.
The first three days focused on building two different types of robotic rovers- the rembot and the lunarbot and programming it with LEGONXT software. The fourth day was the most interesting as we got a chance to explore the various attractions and buildings in the Space centre such as I-Max movie theatres, astronaut encounter, early space, nature and technology, angry birds, rocket garden, robot scouts etc.
We also had a once in a lifetime opportunity to have lunch and interact with a shuttle astronaut- Mark Lee. His words enthralled us acquainting us with a lot of information about outer space and taking up astronautics as a career option. On the last day each team tested the robot they built on the mock lunar surface. The five day program concluded with an excellent graduation ceremony where each student received certificates and the winning team was awarded. The following three days were filled with ecstasy of fun and zest as we visited the well admired theme parks of Disney Hollywood Studios, Universal Islands of Adventure and Sea World. The students thoroughly cherished and enjoyed the thrilling moments spent in these sanctified amusement parks.
Our next flight was to the most popular palace in the States- New York. We had a ferry tour of the Statue of Liberty in the island of Manhattan. It was fascinating and a wonderful sight. The people of France gave the Statue to the people of the United States over one hundred years ago in recognition of the friendship established during the American Revolution. It has now become a symbol of USA and a popular tourist spot. We also did a lot of shopping in Times Square and had a marvellous and splendid view of New York from the top of the famous Empire State Building.
We had an amazing time on the second day at New York which was our final day in America. Our interest in history was manifested with the visit to the Museum of Natural History. We also went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum which enhanced the joy of our trip as we took photos with world renowned and eminent people we fantasize to meet. We returned to India with emancipated happiness of our Dasara vacation filled with experiences and a sense of gratitude, love and respect towards our esteemed and precious teachers who sacrificed their time for making our trip a remarkable one and took care of us like their own children. It left delightful memories that we can recall as anecdotes of our school life down the timeline.
