The VIBGYOR Group of Schools, a leading chain of K-12 schools, today announced the launch of Viva 12, their annual inter-school cultural festival. In light of the on-going pandemic situation, the extravaganza is being hosted virtually for the first time, with activities continuing till 20th December 2020. The grand finale will be broadcast online and on VIBGYOR’s social media channels, allowing viewers across the country to watch the exceptional performances put up by students.
Viva brings together not just VIBGYOR students, but students from various schools across the country to celebrate their many talents and skills. It is a glittering kaleidoscope of enthralling online games, workshops and competitions that showcase a wide range of impressive singing, dancing and acting performances.
On the launch of Viva 12, Ms. Kavita Sahay Kerawalla, Vice Chairperson, VIBGYOR Group of Schools, said, “The New National Education Policy (NEP 2020) lays immense focus on the holistic development of students, which we have been championing for 15 years. VIBGYOR’s pursuit of excellence in holistic education is reflected in the consistent commitment it demonstrates to the overall development of students. Each year, we meticulously curate Viva to provide students from across the country a platform to showcase their immense and diverse talent, and encourage the spirit of healthy competition and collaboration. What puts Viva apart is that it is not just another school fest, it is both an annual ritual and carnival for thousands of students coming together to celebrate, achieve and entertain at a platform that is unparalleled by any other. Through the festival, we aim to provide intellectually stimulating symposiums to motivate young minds to conquer infinite milestones. This year, the spirit of the festival will remain the same, but the platform is digital.”
