PRESIDIANS ENJOY A DELIGHTFUL TIME AT THE OBSTACLE PARK
“All work and no play doesn’t just make Jill and Jack dull, it kills the potential of discovery, mastery, and openness to change and flexibility and it hinders innovation and invention.” — Joline Godfrey
Keeping this view in mind, a visit to the Obstacle Park was organized for Presidians. This visit offered students a perfect opportunity to showcase their flexibility as they tried some somersaults and backflips. The free fall, spiked wheels and the bouncy bed of inflated trampoline gave wings to the children who didn’t want to miss any activity. The visit had been well-curated to make it one of the most cherished incidents in these students’ lives. The activities were full of fun, and also encouraged the students to brainstorm different strategies and techniques to move forward to complete the course. The students were served a variety of lip-smacking cuisine. The day offered a myriad of experiences to all and strengthened the bond between the teachers and the students.
STUDENTS ENJOY AN INTRIGUING SCIENCE ACTIVITY
It is rightly said that a child learns more by doing things instead of memorizing it. Science allows the students to learn about the things around them by doing some experiments. Performing activities help the students retain information easily. Keeping this in mind, an intriguing activity was organized for students of Grade 3 to learn the properties of water. Through this activity, they got a chance to learn with the aid of experiential learning. Concepts related to science cannot be explained to students using the rote learning method. It needs to be integrated with some fun activities so, that the students feel connected with the subject and grasp the concepts easily.
