Festivals build group cohesiveness. Festivals inform, educate, bring people together, break the monotony of routine and give us a chance to re-energize our body, mind, and spirit. Ganesh Chaturthi is a Hindu festival that marks the birthday of Lord Ganesha. People believe that Lord Ganesha, the symbol of wisdom bestows his presence on Earth during this festival and removes their obstacles. With such belief, Presidium School organised various activities on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi through virtual mode. The sole purpose of the celebration was to let the students stay rooted in Indian culture and to enable them to understand the significance of this festival.
People say that to evolve intellectually, you need to read books. Sure, books play a crucial role in education, but movies are not less instructive and also play a role in our educational formation. We, at Presidium, organised virtual Movie Time. The movie chosen for students was a Bal Ganesha animated Kids Movie : wherein students had great fun as they enjoyed every moment of the movie. It was an enthralling experience for them. When it was time to end the movie for the day we faced a lot of requests from students to play on. Such an enthusiastic response was warming. The peak of excitement was the company of friends and teachers along with a packet of popcorn and juice.
Presidium organized an inter-class G.K Quiz competition for Grade 1, 2, 3. The event made sure to involve the participants in their quest for knowledge. The quiz was conducted in a very interactive way and the students participated with great enthusiasm. They skillfully answered the questions asked. Though some of the questions were very tricky, the students answered them confidently. The quiz consisted of general content round, audio, video, and rapid-fire round. The evolving curious minds that emerged as winners were very happy and everyone clapped and cheered for the ecstatic winning of students.
“Sports build good habits, confidence, and discipline”. By participating in sports and games, students gain various skills, experience, confidence, and discipline in life that are helpful for developing their personality. Sport is an integral part of Indian Culture. It helps children to develop mental and physical toughness. To inculcate this spirit in our students, Presidium School celebrated National Sports Day. The National Sports Day is celebrated on the birth anniversary of Hockey Legend Major Dhyan Chand. On this occasion, the students performed with a lot of excitement and vigor in songs, rhyme time, poster making, and role-play of their favorite sports person with zeal. Indeed, it was a wonderful experience for all the students and staff members.
