Buddha Purnima commemorates and celebrates the birth and enlightenment of Lord Buddha. A special assembly on the occasion of Buddha Purnima was organized by grade 2 A of Presidium. To absorb the spirit of this occasion, students dramatized the story of Prince Siddhartha. A captivating performance was presented by the young students. The message of being kind to other fellow beings and not quarreling with each other was also conveyed to the students. The young learners came together to commemorate the might, wisdom, and preaching of Lord Buddha, whose emphasis on conduct and righteousness has greatly augmented Indian society. A discussion on the life and times of Gautama Buddha and Buddha Purnima took place, wherein various teachings of Gautama Buddha like his insights on the strength of mind and soul were shared. This was followed by a session of meditation with teachers and students chanting "Buddham Saranam Gacchami" which unfolded an ambiance full of calmness and tranquility.
Presidium believes God has bestowed every child with astronomical potential, and it also believes that if these skills are honed in the right way and the kids get the necessary guidance and the right platform, every signature can turn into an autograph. In a bid to identify the real talent, Presidium, under the academy ‘Rhythm of the Soul’ organized a Dance Competition. The participants enchanted everyone while swaying to the beats of songs. They were exuberating with confidence and enthusiasm. All the students came up with a spectacular and mind-blowing performance. We all had a gala time. Students enjoyed performing and the teachers enjoyed watching their performances. It was a day of a fantabulous visual treat to everyone gathered.
Earth Day is all about appreciating the uniqueness of our planet Earth with its incredible biodiversity. It is celebrated all over the world as a reminder that we have forgotten the beautiful gift that we have been given in the form of the planet. With this beautiful thought Grade, 12D and Grade 5A students presented an assembly and conveyed the message - Keep the Mother Earth Clean and Green. To make the gathering more lively students danced to “Earth Song” and a theatrical play was depicted to renounce the topic. All students were fully clad up in the color green and shared the significance of “GO GREEN.” They also made remarkable posters to explain the necessity to save our globe. On this day they took a pledge to preserve and protect what Mother Earth has given us. To symbolize this promise the young Presidians distributed the badges to teachers. We, at Presidium, have taken this golden opportunity on this Earth Day to build thoughtful and committed citizens of India!!
Welcoming students has always been an essential part of Presidium and has been a foundation for the positive relationship between students and teachers. To make this journey exciting, the Pre-primary teachers organized various games and activities for the students who entered the school campus. They did different floor activities, played with the hoopla and balls, and took pictures in attractive frames. The students were excited to play and take part in all the games. For some it was their first day, for some it was a long break, but all of them were happy to be in school for their new journey. Each child was welcomed affectionately and was accompanied to the class with a lot of love and care. The students were engaged in various activities throughout the day where they collaborated and set classroom agreements, went on a school tour, bonded with the teachers, and made new friends. Students went back home believing “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Annually celebrated on the 18th of April, World Heritage Day tells the importance of ancient historical buildings and their preservations. To celebrate this day, grade III students of Presidium School participated in the activity wherein they spoke about various monuments of India and presented their own models of monuments. They discussed and manifested how we can preserve these cultural monuments. The aim was to promote awareness about the diversity of the cultural heritage of humanity and the efforts required to protect it. They participated enthusiastically and displayed their creativity. We believe in imbibing values that help students grow and develop into better human beings through informative, educative, and creative activities.
