Guru Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of July of the Hindu calendar to pay our homage to the lineage of spiritual masters. It coincides with the holy birthday of Shri Veda Vyasa, the compiler of the four Vedas and eighteen Puranas. The festival of Guru Purnima was celebrated in our school through a virtual assembly dedicated to the teachers and the gurus. To mark the event students gave a token of love to the teachers in the form of speeches and prayer. Guru Purnima commemorates the goodness of spiritual gurus and teachers as thousands of devotees worship and thank their gurus for enlightenment. The young Presidians were shown a short video on Guru Purnima. The students chanted and wrote the beautiful shloka "Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu Guru Devo Maheshwara Guru Saakshaat Parabrahma Tasmai Shri Gurave Namah.”

Skill development is the primary means of enabling young people to make a smooth transition to work.

The celebration started with an activity of poster making & slogan writing in which students expressed their feelings and shared their thoughts. The Students learned and were motivated to maintain the youthful spirit always. In the end, students were given the message that - "Life starts when you start believing in yourself. So before anything else, start believing in yourself, and the world will believe you."
Drawing and coloring is visual art that allows students to uncover their natural talent in sketching and illustrations. Keeping this in mind and exploring the creative potential in the young minds of children, Presidium who always encourages students' participation in competitions for holistic development of students, organized a virtual Drawing and Colouring Competition for the students of grades 1,2 and 3. The competition was based on different themes like Magical scenes underwater, My dreamland, etc. The students showcased their talent and artistic skills while drawing the pictures, and the result was amazing artwork. This fun-filled activity witnessed enthusiastic participation by all students.
बचपन उस कच्ची मिट्टी के समान होता है जिसे उचित मार्गदर्शन से आकार प्रदान कर हम न केवल युवा पीढ़ी बल्कि एक उत्कृष्ट समाज का भी निर्माण कर सकते हैं। हमारे देश में कई ऐसे महान व्यक्ति हुए हैं जिनका जीवन हमारे लिए प्रेरणा का स्रोत है।जो हमारी जिंदगी बदल सकते हैं। प्रेरक प्रसंग हमें प्रोत्साहित करते हैं, जीने की कला सिखाते हैं तथा अच्छे संस्कारों का निर्माण करते हैं। इसी उद्देश्य को ध्यान में रखते हुए कक्षा 5 के विद्यार्थियों ने हिंदी की गतिविधि प्रेरक प्रसंग आयोजित की। जिसमें सभी विद्यार्थियों ने उत्साह पूर्वक बढ़-चढ़कर हिस्सा लिया । उन्होंने अनेक महापुरुषों जैसे स्वामी विवेकानंद जी, महात्मा गांधी, अब्दुल कलाम आदि के जीवन से जुड़े हुए प्रसंग व रामायण, महाभारत और गीता जैसे महान ग्रंथ से भी प्रसंग प्रस्तुत किए। इस गतिविधि के माध्यम से बच्चों में नई उमंग व चेतना का संचार हुआ व उन्होंने प्रभाव पूर्ण जीवन जीने का निश्चय किया।
Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers. Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit, including a study of numbers, patterns, symmetry, etc. Students of Presidium did an activity of drawing the half part of an image with the help of the other half wherein they got to know that symmetry is what we see at a glance; based on the fact that there is no reason for any difference. Students folded a photo state copy of the image and drew the other half on a sheet. They had fun while completing the image. They learned that a shape is symmetrical when it can be folded into two equal parts.
