What Bishopians say about Bishop's College

A school is not merely a place where one receives a formal education, but an enlightening experience where one learns and discovers themself. 13 years ago, stepping into Bishop’s College unaware, I too was a fresh canvas of a little girl. Since then my Alma Mater guided me on a journey governed by a rich blend of tradition and culture, based on the spiritual and communal values of Christianity, within a framework of self-discipline and integrity. Bishop’s College took me under her wing, along with many young girls of different religions, races and ethnicities, and taught us all that our strength lies in the unity of our differences. She helped us embrace and accept each other, look up to one other with respect and admiration. Through her governing framework, Bishop’s College values fairness and impartiality, encouraging her children to stay attuned with others, through empathy to lift each other. Our motto, ‘Not for self but for all’ imparted through word and deed in the classroom as well as the playground, teaches us a lesson of humility and selflessness followed by an overall sense of thankfulness, and it will surely echo in our hearts far beyond the walls of this prestigious institution. 13 years later today, I am truly thankful as Bishop’s College taught me to write my own story, to discover a balanced modern identity rooted in morality, responsibility and gratitude, to be part of a purposeful generation of humanity.
We don’t get to choose which school we want to go to at the tender age of 5. We trust the process and rely on our parents to make a good choice. In my case, the choice was the best because my ALMA MATER has been great blessing in disguise to me moulding me into the person I am today. BISHOP’S COLLEGE has given me the best of both worlds; encouraging me to excel in my studies and to conquer greater heights in extra-curricular activitiesas well. In addition to these, school has helped me build my social skills, shown the true definition of teamwork and to respect others regardless of their differences, whether it be religion or race. In a time where harmony amongst diverse groups is of utmost importance, we have been taught to respect, admire and embrace the various cultures. This has undoubtedly moulded us into better people, giving hope for a better tomorrow. “NOT FOR SELF BUT FOR ALL” :Our motto, engraved in my heart, portrayed the importance of humility and selflessness. It is a perfect rendition of the saying “together as one”. While climbing the ladder of success, we do not do so alone but by lending a hand to one another and the simplest acts can draw a smile on someone else’s face. Sometimes a cheerful “Good Morning” or a friendly “Thank You” is all it takes. After all, it is the little things that matter the most. The exposure given to us, experience and memories made at Bishop’s College have and will continue to mould us into the strong leaders and the purposeful women we are called to be. For that, I am thankful to both the school and our God. May God Bless my school today and always.
