Bishop Cotton School, Shimla (BCS) celebrated India’s 75th Independence Day (15 August 2022) with a special flag hoisting ceremony on the school’s first flat.
Through the monsoon rain the school community gathered together to raise the Indian flag and sing the Indian National Anthem. The flag fluttered proudly on Shimla’s highest flagpole at the heritage school that was established in 1859.
