RALLY FOR RIVERS: PLEDGING TO NOURISH OUR RIVERS BACK TO HEALTH
Ganga Narmada punya teertham.
Sindhu Saraswati Kaveri jeevana kaarana moola tatvam
Nadi Raashtrasya maha amritam.
To save our dying rivers, our young Presidians recently came forward to join their hands and sensitized and motivated many more for the same by supporting Isha Foundation's nationwide campaign - Rally For Rivers. A special assembly was organized to unveil the hard truth that Ganga, Krishna, Narmada, Kaveri – many of our great rivers are depleting fast. Giving the students of Presidium Indirapuram a feeling of responsibility that If we do not act now, the legacy we hand over to the next generation will be one of conflict and deprivation, the assembly was a profound display of enthusiasm. Students also took a pledge to nurture and nourish our rivers back to health.
PRESIDIANS EXPRESS GRATITUDE TO THEIR MENTORS ON TEACHER'S DAY
The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth.
To express their heartfelt gratitude to the beautiful souls for believing in us, inspiring us in every possible way and making us the proud humans that we are today, our young students celebrated the Teachers’ Day with excitement. The celebration started in the traditional way of paying respect with tilak, sweets and beautiful handmade cards by students themselves. The Presidians of Indirapuram presented some scintillating performances that were packed with energy and created a mesmerizing aura. While we gave certificates to our teachers, Lord Ganesha murtis were gifted to the present VPs. In this event, it was not only the students who performed; but the talents of our teachers were also brought up to the stage.
POOL ACTIVITY: A FUN-FILLED EXPERIENCE FOR LITTLE PRESIDIANS
Splash, splash everywhere; puddles of water here and there!

Bubbling with excitement and enthusiasm, the children relished jumping in the water, splashing water at their friends and playing with each other. It was a memorable and fun-filled experience for all.
INTRA-CLASS GK QUIZ: KNOWLEDGEABLE SESSION FOR LITTLE PRESIDIANS
Having good general knowledge is an important facet of our personality and helps us win at almost everything. Realizing the vast importance of GK, Presidium Indirapuram thought of giving exposure to the children of grade 1 by conducting an 'intra-class GK quiz competition'. Theme of the competition was 'world around us' and the children were asked to prepare for the related topic. They were divided into 4 teams of 5 members each and they were assessed on different rounds like 'content and knowledge', 'audio visual' and 'rapid fire'. Children answered the questions brilliantly and felt very interested in the quiz as they had really worked hard and prepared for it. Team with the most correct answers won and other teams sportingly applauded for them. It was indeed a well interactive session for the 'leaders of tomorrow'.
