Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. - Martin Luther King
Our creative and intellectual lives cannot exist without language. Language is a part of our humanity. Without speech and writing, opinions and ideas are dead. Bishops hopes to inspire individuals; language is a key component that enables our boys to give voice and expression to their individuality and inspiration. The speech component of the Eisteddfod gives boys the platform to debate and articulate their ideas in creative and persuasive ways. This is vital to the life of the creative intellectual. We do this through the four languages taught at Bishops, which are all major languages on the African Continent - English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa and French.
