Inceptra 2021 – the commerce and humanities fest 2021
The third edition of the student driven biennial commerce and humanities fest of our school went virtual on the 23 July, 2021 with the schools from India and Singapore participating in the business blitzkrieg. Ten top notch schools both from under the NPS banner and otherwise such as Sri Kumarans Childrens Home, Deens Academy, Christ Junior College, DPS participated in this mega bash and vied with each other in the nine events incubated by the 12th grade students of commerce, humanities and economics.
The Chief Guest for the day was Mr. Karthik Rajagopal, COO of Manipal Group of Hospitals whose address was thought provoking and insightful. The opening ceremony had our beloved Principal Ms. Shefali Tyagi welcoming the students in her trademark inimitable style and the event got to a flying start with the declaration of the event open. The ceremony was marked with a brilliant run through of the scintillating events by the core committee on a virtual platform with an avenue for the students to explore, engage and entertain in a plethora of events lined up in the fest related to trade, business, commerce, law, history and a lot more. The events were specially curated by the students, keeping in mind the real-world business needs that would enable the students to think on their feet, ideate, collaborate, present their stand points, pitch, lobby and wriggle out of crises.
There was an overwhelming and enthusiastic participation by all the schools in all the events and each one of them battled it out in great competitive spirit keeping up with the slogan of Veni, Vidi, Vici, for the coveted overall championship.
The curtains came down with the vote of thanks and a gala closing ceremony that had the snippets of the day with feedback from the participants and the judges and the much- awaited results. The overall championship trophy was bagged by Christ Junior College for a record third time in a row.
