PRESIDIANS ADVANCE THEIR ORATORY SKILLS WITH POEM RECITATION
Beauty is the realm of poetry, it is one of the best way to teach the students, the right way to express themselves and share their thoughts. It was mesmerising to listen to the diction of learners through rhythm & rhyme at the inta class recitation competition held recently in Presidium Noida. This platform exposed the learners to constructive competition and confronted them against stage fright. It also empowered them to learn from their peers as each of these poems had unique flavour and genre.

FUN OBSERVANCE OF THEME 'PRESERVATION OF FOOD' AT MC DONALD'S
As an extension to their learning of the theme, ‘Preservation of Food’, the students of grade 5 recently visited McDonalds. The visit enabled them to understand that cold storage helps in long-term storage of perishable vegetables. They were escorted to the cold storage room and shown the various food items preserved there like tomatoes, eggs, mayonnaise and cheese. The students keenly observed the different products and enquired about the use of the product and the method of preserving it. Proper temperature and humidity plays important role to keep the produce in good condition, and thus, they learnt about the importance of a cold-storage. It was a great learning experience for all of them.
