STUDENTS MARK ENERGY CONSERVATION DAY WITH SPECIAL ASSEMBLY
"Use energy right, make the future bright."
With this beautiful thought, students of Grade -3 presented a special assembly to understand the significance of the need to conserve energy. National Energy Conservation Day is observed every year on 14th December. It is the day for building awareness regarding energy conservation, energy efficiency, and frugality in energy use. Our young learners spoke about the importance of energy and its conservation and focused on saving it for future usage. Presidians also discussed the measures that should be exerted to conserve energy as saving energy reduces the pollution level, such as using LED bulbs, solar energy, using 5 star rated appliances, etc. They recited poems, created informative posters with motivational slogans like "Save today, survive tomorrow," followed by a PowerPoint presentation. In the end, they pledged a wholehearted commitment towards energy conservation.
PRESIDIANS ORGANIZE A SPECIAL ASSEMBLY ON UNICEF DAY
UNICEF, also known as the United Nations Children's Fund, is a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.

PRESIDIANS LEARN ABOUT QUANTIFICATION WITH ZEST
Quantification is one of the first mathematical skills that children learn. It begins very early in life, well before counting and number identification. Quantification is the ability to identify sets of objects by automatic recognition. Sometimes it is called subitizing. Our nursery students have showcased their learning of the concept through hands-on experience of the activity. The learning of our aspiring mathematicians is evident through their depictions and representations. The students enjoyed the activity in a fun-filled manner.
PRESIDIANS RELISH THE FOOD FESTIVAL
“Food is not just eating energy. It’s an experience”- Guy Fieri.
For some people, Food is just a necessity to satisfy basic needs; for some people Food is a pleasure that plays a significant role in their understanding of happiness. As India is a huge country, it is practically impossible to visit every state and city for a culinary experience; therefore, Presidians of Grade-1 organized an Indian food festival consisting of delicious Indian Food to refresh drinks to mouth watering desserts. The main objective behind the event was making the children aware of the names of various food items and the cultures they come from. The students showcased not only the cuisines of different states but also different items reflecting the culture of that particular state. Presidians presented a handpicked list of food items of varied Indian states from north to south and from west to east. The special workshop was a perfect amalgamation of Food, fun, and learning for the leaders of tomorrow.
PRESIDIANS ADVOCATE ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS WITH NUKKAD NATAK
"Human Rights are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity." - Mother Teresa
10th December is an opportunity to reaffirm the importance of human rights in re-building the world we want, the need for global solidarity, and our interconnectedness and shared humanity. This was no better understood by the leaders of tomorrow as they presented a Nukkad Natak on the rights of the children and expressed empathy towards them, taking a stand for care and love and right to education for them. The Presidians who have a strong belief in taking a stand for the right cause could portray their feelings through this Natak and spoke about it through speeches and slogans. They also made posters to commemorate the day. The observance of International Human Rights Day made our upcoming generation aware of the rights that a human being is inherently entitled to.
SHOW & TELL COMPETITION UNLEASHES ORATORY TALENTS OF STUDENTS
The 'Show & Tell' activity helps students develop their verbal communication skills, enhance social skills, and foster the young minds' public speaking competency. The students were informed to present any object of their choice. Charts and posters were prepared by the students of Grade prep, which added to the competition's beauty. Competitions like these improve students' involvement in individual activity, infusing them with originality, self-confidence, and self-reliance. The inspiring presentation left no stone unturned to achieve a realistic appraisal of their skills and discover the power of spoken words. Students participated in this Show and Tell competition with full of energy and spirit. It was a great experience to witness this event.
PRESIDIANS STRENGTHEN THEIR NUMBER NAME KNOWLEDGE
Counting is used by children to demonstrate knowledge of the number names and number system. The numbers can be expressed invariably, and number names are one amongst them. Students should learn it during their early age learning modules with correct spellings and proficiency. Our teachers made this concept easier to learn by playing various number games with their students. The names of numbers are essential for each student to know. To recall the numbers and number names, a special activity was organized by grade prep wherein the students showcased their learnings by depicting them through chart papers, flashcards, etc. The outcome of the activity was very much visible through their sharing of the concept, which helped in strengthening their knowledge.
PRESIDIANS CONSTRUCT A SAND CLOCK!
Presidium organized a virtual activity of Mathematics for Grade II students on "Constructing Sand Clock." In this activity, students came to know about a conventional method of reading time. Students constructed the sand clock using the following material: two small plastic bottles, some hard paper, tape, some glitters, and scissors. Through this activity, students learned a conventional and practical way of reading time. Students participated with full zeal and had an experiential hand on the learning. The whole activity was conducted in an ethical and well-disciplined manner.
PRESIDIANS PAY THEIR RESPECT TO GURU NANAK ON 'GURPURAB'

LITTLE ARTSY HANDS CREATE THE BEST OUT OF WASTE!
"A society is defined not only by what it creates but by what it refuses to destroy. Recycling turns things which are like magic."
Little hands and imagination minds came together in a creative burst of energy during the "Best out of waste" competition held on Virtual Platform in Presidium. The competition focused on bringing an understanding among the students of Grades I, II, and III about preserving the environment by reusing and recycling waste material. They used their imagination and creativity to make innovative things. Fantabulous ideas were demonstrated using material like newspapers, old CDs, used plastic bottles, ice cream sticks, bangles, shoe boxes, etc. All these things are waste in our day-to-day life and were used constructively, and a variety of things were made from them as our confident Presidians made a wall hanging with bangles, pen stands, lanterns, vases, etc. The activity displayed the creativity of the little ones and developed a sense of love for the environment.
