"The weak can never forgive; forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” - Mahatma Gandhi

The students prepared speeches to pay tribute to Gandhiji and reflected on his great works. Students spread the message of endurance, peace, harmony and expressed their gratitude to Gandhiji for giving us the powerful tool of non-violence. The students reminisced Gandhiji’s favourite songs.

PRESIDIANS TAKE ANOTHER STEP FORWARD IN GOING GREEN
The best place to start going green is to practice the 3R's (Reuse, Recycle and Reduce). To create this awareness among students, a paper bag activity was organized in the school. Students prepared paper bags using newspapers and distributed them in the nearby areas. They encouraged their neighbourhood to use paper bags and to avoid using plastic bags as an initiative to save the environment.
PRESIDIANS SHOWCASE VIBRANT DANCE MOVES AT DANCE COMPETITION
Dance is a means to communicate emotions without words. Dance competition is a highly rewarding and worthwhile activity for students of all ages and is a great way to build up an emotional resilience in a child. It enforces kids to gain emotional strength and to accept criticism and rejection gracefully. ‘Rhythm of the Soul Academy’ organised an Inter Class Dance Competition for our little Presidians to showcase their talent. Dressed beautifully, the students performed excellent performances on ‘Western Style’ theme. Certificates and trophies were awarded to the best performers in the end.

Activities like ‘Hopscotch’, hit the colour, dice game, pictionary, 'Jod Tod ka Khel', etc. were organised to put on their thinking caps again and add a fun element to various academic topics. The little Presidians of the pre-primary wing actively participated in these activities and enjoyed a day full of fun and learning.

TEACHERS RECEIVE RECOGNITION AT CHAIRPERSON HONOURS FOR TEACHERS
Good teachers know how to bring out the best in students; great institutions know how to acknowledge their teachers for their contributions. Our beloved Chairperson Sudha Gupta ma’am truly believes that not all superheroes wear capes, some have teaching degrees and create magic inside the classroom. Presidium School culminated its week long Teacher’s Day celebrations with the grand Chairperson Honours for Teachers (Session 2018-19). We, at Presidium, understand that it takes a strong pair of shoulders, a determined mind, and an ambitious vision to support and scaffold our children and help them flourish into Leaders of Tomorrow. As teachers continue to tirelessly train our children, it is imperative to honour them for their devotion to the cause. The event saw teachers walk up the stage to receive their acknowledgments, while their colleagues lauded their dedication, passion and unwavering resolution to make our future brighter. Every shield, every certificate, every handshake, and every smile resonated the feeling of sincere gratitude. To make the celebration even more colourful, teachers from 7 different branches of Presidium set the stage on fire with their dance performances. One after the other, they came and left us mesmerised.
It is true, our teachers are extraordinary all-rounders, just like our students!
