World Animal Day is an opportunity for people of all ages to celebrate and raise awareness for the tens of thousands of known threatened species around the world. When a species becomes endangered, it is a sign that the ecosystem is slowly falling apart. We wanted to engrain the same thoughts in the mind of our little Presidians as they participated and presented in role-playing in the guise of a Panda, a Tiger, and a Polar bear and shared species become endangered for two main reasons: loss of habitat and loss of genetic variation. They created awareness and celebrated with full zeal by dressing up as animals. They also showed through their actions that deforestation is one of the primary reasons species become endangered or extinct. Forests cover 31% of the Earth’s land and are home to much of the world’s biodiversity so they conveyed the message that it is essential that we understand the importance of endangered and threatened plant/animal species conservation and how as individuals we can make a difference.
National Daughter’s Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Sunday of September in India. This one particular day is dedicated to our daughters showing them affection while celebrating the occasion by giving them wishes, gifts, and endless blessings! National Daughter’s Day is a day that we Presidians celebrate with full joy, pride, and enthusiasm. The day began by wishing all the girls “Happy Daughter’s Day." Then the entire class whether boy or girl got engaged in card-making activities. Students engaged in a card-making activity; girls pasted their most memorable picture on their cards and sharing, how they had been made special during that day and the gifts they got from their parents. Boys made cards for their lovely sisters and mothers. They shared how they make their sisters and mother feel special by giving them cards, helping sisters in their work, playing with them, and sharing their pieces of chocolates with them.

Ganesh Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chaturthi is the festival that honors Lord Ganesha. It marks the birth of the elephant-headed deity Ganesha, the god of prosperity and wisdom. Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the favourite festivals of our young Presidians which they celebrate with dance, music, pooja with friends and family. Students were involved in making ‘Ganesh Chaturthi Pandal’ in different ways like decorating mandir using coloured sheets and decorative materials. Our activity program started with Ganesh Vandana. We motivated students to have a green Ganesh Chaturthi and to inculcate this nature-friendly attitude in them, an eco-friendly Ganesha was crafted and beautifully decorated for the occasion. Students shared the importance of this festival and how they celebrate it at home. The session came alive with the mesmerizing chanting of ‘Ganapati Bappa Morya.'
A hopscotch game was organized for the students of Nursery where they played the game of letters and numbers. It helps children to master body control, which is the core of numerous other skills like build body strength, balance, eye/hand coordination, and more. This activity helped them to recognize the letters, understand the sounds and relate them to the objects through a letter-sound relationship. In Maths they made a dice with 1-5 Dominos/dots on its sides, the child had to roll the dice, count the dots and jump on the correct number made on the floor. Through this activity, the children learned how to count and recognize the correct letter. It was a fun-filled activity where the students enjoyed immensely along with learning various other concepts. They were excited to play and asked the teachers to organize more games.
