PRESIDIANS PAY A HEART-WARMING TRIBUTE TO NELSON MANDELA
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is
not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”-Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
Mandela Day is a global call to bring the people around the world together to fight poverty and promote peace.

They also presented a skit with placards depicting various excerpts from his life. Students were sensitized to be patient, courageous and more tolerant.

PRESIDIANS SUCCESSFULLY CREATE ART FROM THEIR HEART!
Children draw to express what they are feeling and thinking. When a child draws something familiar to them, they have the opportunity to think about what they know and how they feel about the picture they are drawing. Drawing helps to develop manipulative skills that will assist children to write. Drawing and colouring competition is always one of the most enjoyable competitions since it allows free flow of creativity and imagination. An ‘Art from Heart’ competition was recently organized to explore and encourage creativity in Presidians and offer them a platform to show their skills in drawing and colouring. They participated earnestly in the competition. It was a difficult task thereafter for the class teachers to short list outstanding performers from each class. The students came up with amazing art work at drawing.
