Re: Protocol for Old Cottonians

The matter relating to visits of OCs to the school was discussed with the Headmaster and he was informed of the apprehensions expressed by some members of being shut out of the campus and not being allowed to visit their Alma Mater.

Mr Robinson assured me that the old boys are always welcome to visit the school but the entry of visitors has to be balanced with the need to avoid disturbance of school routines and the present day security issues ( regarding which he has received a communication from state authorities). Hence, OCs are advised to call and seek permission before visiting the school and, if this was not possible, to wait  awhile at the gate while the security gets a clearance from the Headmaster/Senior Master.

In addition, he assured me that they can visit anytime from 3pm to 5pm on weekdays and through out the day on Sundays when classes are not in session.
It must be understood that students do get disturbed when classes are in session and visitors are seen on the first flat.

I would also like to request the Chapter Heads to issue some sort of ID cards for OCs as this would make it easier to distinguish them from other visitors and meet the needs of security. They must also maintain proper decorum on their visits and not create any disturbance as, by doing so, they shall set an example for the school kids to emulate.

Thanks and regards,
BM Singh

Cottonian Polo Team Plays in Hawaii USA

As part of the celebrations  to commemorate the 40th year of the class of ’71 passing out of BCS, I led my polo team called the ‘Cottonian Polo Team’ to play an Invitational International Polo tournament in Hawaii, USA from 25 Aug to 5 Sept, 2011. The final match played on Sunday 4th Sept was won by the ‘Cottonian Polo Team’ against the local favorites the  ‘Hawaii Polo Club Team’ by a nail biting 9-8 goal score line. The match was keenly contested by both teams & played in a fast paced encounter on the beautiful Hawaii Polo Ground located on the beach of the famous North Shore of Oahu in Honolulu, Hawaii. This match was the Grand Finale event of the Hawaii Polo season & was watched by a record crowd of over 3,000 spectators, enjoying the polo, after polo party, a sky diving display & the festive atmosphere. I will be sending pictures of the match later, to be posted here.

Best Regards
