STUDENTS EXHIBIT THEIR TALENT AT RECITATION COMPETITION
“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”
An Intra Class Rhyme Recitation Competition was organized by Primary Classes at Presidium. Beauty is the realm of poetry; the students enthusiastically participated in the competition as they got an opportunity to exhibit their talent and confidence. The competition inspired the young poets to come forward and recite their piece of art. The students came up with diverse poems on the different themes and recited them with great fondness and zeal. They enjoyed the perfection of expression, thoughts, emotions, rhythm and music of words. Students were judged on the parameters like confidence, voice modulation, memorization and overall presentation. It was a splendid opportunity for them to gain confidence.
STUDENTS HONE THEIR IMAGINATION WITH DRAWING & COLORING ACTIVITY
“Art encourages children to think, developing skills and confidence as they go.” It is as natural as sunshine and as vital as nourishment. At Presidium, it is believed imagination is as important as knowledge. Our task regarding creativity is to help students climb their mountains, as high as possible. Keeping in mind for our young artist, Presidium
organized a “Drawing and Colouring competition” for grades 1st to 3rd with three themes to choose from – 1) any scene of their choice, 2) Flower Pot and flowers and 3) Magical world underwater. As the world is but a canvas to the imagination, in line with this view, the themes were selected so that students can explore their imagination as
high as possible before putting it down on paper.
STUDENTS COMMEMORATE THE BIRTH & ENLIGHTENMENT OF LORD BUDDHA
Gautam Buddha, the messenger of peace, equality, and fraternity was born in Lumbini in the 6th Century BC. Buddha Purnima is referred to as Buddha Jayanti.

STUDENTS OBSERVE WORLD BOOK DAY WITH ENTHUSIASM
As we all know, books are considered to be human’s best friend. And in all ages and stages of life, we read books. Books not only give us knowledge on various subjects but also a whole lot on culture and history as well. Reading extensively makes a person intellectual and helps to know the society in broader prospects. So our Presidians of all age groups are trained to develop this habit and love for books. As it is well said that your habit leads to your nature. So that they can inculcate the reading habit in the later stage of life. Not only this they were made aware of how they can take good care of books and can restore them for future use and can
maintain a small personal library of their own as well. They were even made aware that old books can be donated to people who are in need and can be reused.
