Correction of names on the Honour Boards at BCS Dining, Irwin Hall etc.

Dear OCs,

Greetings..!

We are already aware that the ‘Honour Boards’ at BCS are a source of inspiration and very dear to all of us.

Every time we visit School and see our name/s displayed on those boards, we feel ecstatic and proudly show it to our children, wife, friends etc. Because to be up there sums-up our hardwork, our achievements and entire time spent in school, be it sports or academics.

But if a name is not rightly displayed or mis-spelt, we feel dejected and embarrassed.

Therefore, with due apology, I humbly request you to inform us via email Ashwani Singh Virk <ashvirk@hotmail.com>or WhatsApp (98101-94724), if you have noticed such an un-intended error in your name displayed or any other related mistake on the ‘Honour Boards’ at School so that we are able to request them to rectify the same at the earliest.

Best wishes,

Ash Virk

Nostalgia / BCS 1930 School Party train

We came across a picture at the OCA [Delhi] Chapter facebook page of the BCS School-party leaving Simla station for the “plains” – a photo from 1930. The photo is from the Estate of Canon Peacey,  sent by Mr. Barry Williamson to Raaja Bhasin and subsequently to Ashwani Virk who is the VP of OCA Delhi Chapter.
Here it is
J.R. PEACEY (1896-1971) was born in Hove, Sussex, England, the youngest of 10 children.

He graduated from Selwyn College, Cambridge, in 1921 with honors in Theology.

The third and current version of our School Song as written in 1930 by Jack Hammond, the English teacher and Canon Peacey, the Headmaster; Lawrence Crosthwaite’s talents were utilised in putting the words to music. Here is a link to the school song

[Above received from Ashwani Singh Virk with thanks]

It gives me great pleasure and pride, as would all fellow Cottonians feel, in informing you that Karma Tenzin Nyangmi, Old Cottonian of Batch 1998, School Prefect of House Curzon, and Awardee of Full School Blazer for Sports, successfully arrived at the summit of Mount Everest at 1:05pm on 15 May 2019.

It was a 39 days expedition starting on 9 April 2019 with an international team of 12 members, out of which only 6 completed the course, 4 descended from Camps 2 and 3, and, unfortunately, 2 perished.

Karma waived the Bishop Cotton School crest at the top of world!
