Dear Old Cottonians (friends and relatives of OCs),
As we move into the new year of 2023 the School is trying to claw back its treasured archive papers and photographs. In this day and age we can scan or click on our phones any old archive documents or team photos that document our school’s history. Over the years our precious photos have leaked away from Shimla across the world. Even one priceless trophy donated to the school ‘The Bayliss Shield’ has gone missing from our 163 year history – taken home by a student.
Please can you all have a look through your family archives and share any school history so we can display in and around school to be appreciated by all and ‘for those who’ve yet to come….’ Please send any school historical photos or documents electronically to this email: email@example.com so we can store these to keep for future generations.
If you know where the Bayliss Shield is hiding please have it returned to your school, with all best wishes for the future Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2023.
(PS: even this photo below is not physically in the school and we are trying to trace it)
