BCS 2022 Cricket : UK tour

Message from Mr. Simon Weale / BCS Director:
Dear Old Cottonians, Plans are now well advanced for a BCS U15 cricket tour to the UK this summer from 8th-21st June 2022. We are just waiting for our visas. We are hoping to bring 33 boys on tour and to play a series of matches against a number of the top independent schools in the South of England. Our current itinerary includes the following fixtures
  • 9th June v Westminster School
  • 10th June v Culford School
  • 13th June v Merchant Taylors’ School
  • 14th June v Eton College
  • 16th June v Aldenham School
  • 17th June v Forest School
  • 20th June v Marlborough College
OCs will be welcome to come and watch matches (a full programme will be published closer to the time). On the evening of the 16th June we are hoping that an OC XI will play the Aldenham School Headmaster’s XI at Aldenham. If you are interested in playing in the match or in contributing towards tour funds please contact the school by email on director@bishopcotton.com

BTW, BCS just won the Cricket match against Lawrence School Sanawar. Congrats! Watch a video clip: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1053308961951434

The True Essence Of Nature Conservation by Bittu Sahgal [BCS class of 1963]

Let’s get BCS to take the lead to start a Nature-focused, India-wide, public Schools Initiative.

Sanctuary Nature Foundation could do this at no cost to the school, or to the kids.

We already run Kids for Tigers a one-million-strong network that looks upon tigers, elephants, leopards and what have you as metaphors for all of nature.

Essentially, we wish not just to leave a better world for our kids, but better kids for the planet too.
