The launch of the webpage to commemorate 150 years of Bishop’s College (1875-2025) begins an extraordinary journey. A journey to reflect on and celebrate the genesis of women’s education; based on the tenets of ‘charity, community spirit, and public service’ upheld by the motto of our school ‘Non Sibi Sed Omnibus’ –Not for Self, but for All!
Since its inception, Bishop’s College has continued to evolve to provide a holistic education for women, whilst staying true to its founding values. Therefore, it is only apt that the celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary in 2025, beginning with the Founders’ Day commemoration in 2023 embrace the ethos of the school towards the upliftment of charity, scholarship, and unbounded spirit.
The webpage aims to be a user-friendly platform; to highlight special events scheduled in the coming years leading up to the 150th year in 2025, feature articles of significant historical milestones, recognise and applaud the people who have contributed both professionally and personally, call attention to the major funding projects, and most of all, provide a space to share the wonderful memories and stories that have made the school, a second home to all.
I am deeply grateful to the Principal, Vice Principal, and all the executive members of the ‘150th Anniversary Commemoration Executive Committee’, for their untiring efforts. I hope that the website will serve as an archive of Bishop’s College, and a record of the lives of everyone it has touched.
Thank you. May Bishop’s College grow from strength to strength.
