Presidium strongly stands for empowerment as our philosophy is ‘be what you want to be’ and we create leaders of tomorrow. This is exactly what PMUN 2018 aimed to do; empower the youth and give these young trailblazers an opportunity to exhibit their skills as potential leaders of tomorrow. With a passionate Secretariat the school ensured that this PMUN conference fulfilled all expectations that any MUN ever had. Determined, to take the legacy forth, to leave a mark, the effervescent young minds came together to find the panacea for all the blemishes that persecute our environment.
CHURNING CONFIDENCE OF PRESIDIANS THROUGH APPRECIATION DAY
‘Appreciation nourishes one's soul to let excellence blossom and flourish.’
Appreciation not only makes a person happy & joyful but also creates bridges of motivation and inspiration which leads to success eventually.

Thus, we recently organised an Appreciation Day to acknowledge their significant contribution in each term. They were felicitated with special certificates of recognition for their best qualities. Their beautiful smiles truly conveyed that 'Appreciation is the true fuel to engine of excellence'.
