What Bishopians say about Bishop's College

14 idyllic years of growth, invaluable memories, friendships to last a lifetime and teachings that will aid you to succeed in every aspect of life; this is undoubtedly the story of every Bishopian. The journey a little 5 year old embarks upon from the moment she steps into the safety of our school till the day she steps out to the society as a well rounded young woman replete with humility, gratitude and sheer grace, is beyond extraordinary.
The story of a Bishopian is unlike ones that have been told before, as it isn’t merely a story. It is a never-ending legend that continues to live within each of us even years after our school lives have drawn to an end. When we began our journeys at this institution that moulded us into what we are today, we too were frightened 4-year-olds who stepped into this school with tear-stained faces and a heart full of dreams.

14 idyllic years of growth, invaluable memories, friendships to last a lifetime and teachings that will aid you to succeed in every aspect of life; this is undoubtedly the story of every Bishopian. The journey a little 5 year old embarks upon from the moment she steps into the safety of our school till the day she steps out to the society as a well rounded young woman replete with humility, gratitude and sheer grace, is beyond extraordinary. With merely 8 months of school life left to go, it frightens me to think that I will no longer be able to return to my safe haven every day. The pride we feel when we see the purple and gold flag soaring high, owes to the fact that our Alma Mater has been a place of love, security and comfort for each of her girls. Our school surpasses the stereotypical educational institute as our education is not merely limited to textbook theories but also includes teachings of integral principles of life. At Bishop’s College, we are taught to see the beauty in diversity and to embrace our differences by always acting on the foundation set by our motto, “Non Sibi Sed Omnibus”. The equitable ways of life, values of kindness, generosity and selflessness imparted unto us during our time at Bishop’s College will most certainly stay embedded within us forever, being our guiding light during trying times. Bishop’s College is home for all her staff and students, a magical universe of positivity, acceptance and growth that enables each of its residents to form an identity of their own while being rooted in traditions and a rich culture of nearly 150 years. The power of a Bishopian is unparalleled and the greatest honour for each and every student of the purple and gold realm is being recognized as a Bishopian. I believe it is my privilege and luck that enabled this honour to be bestowed upon me as indelible, joyous memories closest to my heart have been formed within the secure walls of my Alma Mater as we strive to serve and repay her for her kindness and support, to the best of our capabilities. What makes our school so incredibly unique is that it stores the story of thousands of Bishopians, both past and present, by allowing each student to leave her own golden mark, thus creating an impeccable and unforgettable legacy. As I ponder over what I could contribute to enrich this legacy, the only thought that crosses my mind is to sprinkle a hint of my own gold dust to our canvas which will forever bleed purple, in the hopes of encouraging several other young Bishopians to do the same!

The story of a Bishopian is unlike ones that have been told before, as it isn’t merely a story. It is a never-ending legend that continues to live within each of us even years after our school lives have drawn to an end. When we began our journeys at this institution that moulded us into what we are today, we too were frightened 4-year-olds who stepped into this school with tear-stained faces and a heart full of dreams. However, Bishop’s College took us in her warm embrace and has continued to nurture us and help us grow into fearless young leaders who are ready to sweep the world off its feet. Writing the final chapters of our own school stories fills us with an immeasurable amount of sadness as we reminisce about the journeys we have lived at this school. From concerts and plays to sports and competitions, the experiences many others and I shared together at this school are unmatched to anything from even our wildest dreams. Bishop’s College taught us that it is not just the awards we win or the positions we hold that matter, but it is also the selfless choices that we make every day that count. The helping hand we offer, which may go unnoticed, is what the Bishopian spirit is all about. Our home of purple and gold has inculcated in us a deep sense of comfort that we feel each day as we enter through her welcoming gates. Each child that walks in has a different story to tell, and our school ensures that each story is heard. It is not just in academics that our Bishopians shine their brightest shades of purple, but they also thrive in sports and arts, and learn invaluable life lessons from the numerous things this school has to offer. The regal flag waving in the wind and the anthem that fills our ears flood our hearts with a sense of pride that cannot be captured through mere words. As we prepare ourselves to step into the real world, all we have to say to our alma mater is ‘thank you’, for giving us the map for the rest of our lives. Every story we have created and will create will always have you as its heartbeat, because for us, our now and forever will always be Bishop’s College.
