ON MOTHER’S DAY, PRESIDIANS SHOWER LOVE ON THEIR SUPERHEROES
It is truly said, “God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.” Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. Keeping this bonding emotion in mind, we at Presidium organised a special celebration and assembly on Mother’s Day. As we know Mother’s Day comes once a year. If we only comprehended a 10th of what our mothers did for us as children, and how they would literally sacrifice anything for us if needed, we would realize that one day is not sufficient. So to honor the mothers, attractive boards showcasing the creativity of children were also displayed. Mother’s day cards, messages and photographs, all adorned the venue.

MONTHLY THEME: PRESIDIANS LEARN THE JOY OF SHARING
Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.
We believe in sensitizing children by teaching such values of life. We started the new session by introducing theme for the month where children will learn to share and care for each other. True sharing implies empathy, the ability to get into another’s mind and see things from their viewpoint. Learning how to share also implies how to become a good human being and a more
efficient member of the society and cultivating strong relationships. For this, it is important that
the child is encourage sharing through tasks and activities. These values have to be fostered both at home by parents and at schools by teachers so that they become an important trait in the personality of the child and remain with the individual throughout his life. Children shared their games, toys, books, and watched movies together to celebrate this joy of sharing.
