PRESIDIANS COMMEMORATE INDIA'S FREEDOM ON 72ND INDEPENDENCE DAY
गुलाम बने इस देश को आजाद तुमने कराया है
सुरक्षित जीवन देकर तुमने कर्ज अपना चुकाया है
दिल से तुमको नमन हैं करते
ये आजाद वतन जो दिलाया है….!!
To celebrate this occasion of Independence day, the students of grade 2 presented a special assembly. To grace this beautiful event and to encourage our young leaders, Ms Aparna Gupta, Director Gurgaon Zone Presidium was invited.

The young patriots also performed a heart touching dance drama, which showcased their gratitude towards our unforgettable freedom fighters. The assembly was concluded by a mesmerising dance performance on a patriotic song followed by the national anthem.
PRESIDIUM GURGAON, PROUD HOST OF PMUN 2018 FOR YOUTH EMPOWERMENT
“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.”
Presidium Gurgaon successfully hosted the sixth edition of the much awaited Presidium Model United Nations Conference 2018 - PRESIDIUM FOR YOUTH EMPOWERMENT from 10th - 12th 2018. Sometimes in this gigantic world, ideas get lost and many amazing minds are overlooked because of age, economic issues, and gender affairs. The three day long PMUN conference opened a door, one that sparkled with potential– the world-changing kind. 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. Acknowledging efforts, talents and attributes gives the tender hearts, a sense of being loved. We at Presidium really believe that the students must receive appreciation and acknowledgement at the end of every term, so that their confidence always remains boosted. With constant love, motivation and inspiration they will become capable enough to convert their signatures into autographs. 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'.
YOUNG ACHIEVERS HONOURED AT ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2018

She proudly felicitated the achievers with shining trophies and certificates to honour and appreciate the diligence, proficiency and brilliance that led to overall excellence, subject excellence or 100% attendance. With exceptional results in session 2017-18, the scholars have taken the name of the school a notch higher and we are sure they will continue to do so in future as well.
