‘There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.’
In an effort to emphasize the core values of experiential learning and to strengthen the knowledge of our students, an excursion to ‘Nehru Planetarium’ was organized for grade 3 students. This field visit was planned under the concept of ‘Sky’ in Theme Based Learning. One of the major attractions was the Soyuz T-10 which carried India’s first cosmonaut ‘Rakesh Sharma’ to space. His space suit on display brought great excitement among the students. They enjoyed many activities such as a 40-minute movie at ‘The Sky Theatre’, watching constellations, stars, planets, galaxies, etc. It was a very productive and enlightening trip that inspired many students to take up astronomy as a subject and learn more about the outer space!

PRESIDIANS LEARN THROUGH A STORYTELLING SESSION
Stories have always been part and parcel of childhood. They hold a very special place in the tender hearts of kids and the fond memories of listening to stories is deeply woven in our souls. Stories not only are sources of enjoyment but also a very important way to learn in an innovative and child friendly manner. We at Presidium, believe in creating such opportunities for our kids so that learning is always fun. We recently held a storytelling session for the students of grade prep and narrated a story ‘The wise rabbit’. The young learners enjoyed listening to the story with special effects and also learnt a lot about animals and their virtues. It was indeed a fun filled day where not only students but teachers also enjoyed thoroughly.
