ACADEMIC YEAR 2020 – VIRTUAL INAUGURATION

Welcome to Commits. We begin the new academic year virtually, with the hope and prayer that we will all be able to meet each other face to face soon.

If there is one thing that Covid-19 cannot do, it is to suppress the will power and energy of the students.

We assure you that the quality of learning will not suffer, and classes will keep you excited and busy. We will still be face to face, virtually, and have the same discussions, and debates. Your seniors will of course, e-greet you and e-ice break with you!

On Thursday, August 20, we will have a formal e-inaugural ceremony at 10 am, for which the link will be shared on your registered email. Your parents too can login, if they wish to.
