The students of Presidium visited Holy Cross Orphanage on the eve of Christmas. Students were very happy to meet the underprivileged section of the society. The celebration started with a prayer followed by cutting of the cake and singing of Christmas Carols. They also decorated the Christmas tree with children of the Orphanage. Students brought some gifts as a token of love and warmth like books, chocolates, stationery kits, mufflers, gloves, etc. for them. This brought joy ‘n’ cheer on everyone’s face. Games like passing-the-parcel, musical chairs were also played with them. It was indeed heart-warming to witness the ease with which they were dancing and singing with our students. The memories will be cherished for a lifetime. The students took a pledge to work for the upliftment of such sections of the society.
Presidium celebrated Christmas with great fervor and enthusiasm. The entire school vibrated with the echoes of Christmas carols. The school was beautifully decorated in a festive look with bells, streamers, Christmas tree and snowman. Our Presidians were dressed up as Santas and fairies. The students sang melodious carols and danced beautifully to wish their teachers and peers. The significance of Christmas was explained through the story of Jesus Christ. Throughout the day students were engrossed in activities like card making, Christmas tree decorations, snowman making, etc. To inculcate the spirit and joy of giving the wall of kindness was created on the occasion so that everyone can donate for the noble cause of humanity.
At Presidium, we believe in learning by doing. An activity on action words, for the students of grade prep were taken up keeping this philosophy in mind. Learning with fun is considered the most effective strategy. The students tried reading and demonstrating action words. They were involved in performing actions like jumping, crawling, sliding, playing, hopping, etc. with the action dice.The activity was an amalgamation of fun and curriculum which proved to be really effective in improving the learning skills of the students. It enhanced their interest for the concept with an improved memory and attention span. The activity kept the students interested and the learning became more productive.
The TBL theme 'Out On Road' was culminated by grade nursery to promote the holistic development of students. It directly connected students to their immediate surroundings so that they establish their classroom learning to the real world. It develops the observation skills and knowledge about different buildings and their uses, vehicles, helpers and animals they see on the road. The theme is designed in such a manner that it includes activities through which students vary their body movements and speed, hence develop their gross motor skills. Safety is a very crucial aspect of social development. Therefore, this theme engages students in activities related to road safety.
