St. Peter’s day has always been one of the most sanctimonious events at Cottons. It is where the entire school community joins together in uplifting the name of God and the Holy Spirit. This year the message was delivered by Rev. Roger Gaikwad who spoke about peculium and it’s relevance in the World.
Inauguration of New Block on St Peters Day
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.
