PRESIDIANS TAKE A STEP TOWARDS A GREENER PLANET WITH PAPER BAGS
The key to a greener planet is in our hands!
To make our dear students realize the importance of this responsibility, a Paper Bag Making Club Activity was recently organized at Presidium, Raj Nagar. Recyclable, reusable and biodegradable, paper bags are a big initiative towards a healthy environment. Our talented Presidians from grade 3 took part in this wonderful activity proactively. It was amazing to witness their creativity in designing paper bags, which are undoubtedly a better alternative to plastic bags. The students used waste material like old newspapers and magazines for creating beautiful and innovative paper bags. Thoroughly enjoyed by all, this fun-filled activity served the purpose of sensitizing students about saving the environment.
PRESIDIANS DIVE INTO THE DREAMY WATER KINGDOM WITH FISH MAKING
"One little fish swam in his dish, he blew bubbles and made a wish. All he wanted was Another Fish".
Fishes, the vibrant and fascinating creatures, always tend to capture the imagination of kids and take them into a dreamy world of water. To kindle creativity and let the kids dive into the kingdom of fishes, Presidium Raj Nagar organized a Fish Making Activity for Grade 1 students under the 'Out of the Box Academy'. The students made beautiful fishes in the Paper Folding Activity with the help of Origami sheets. Enthralled with the exposure to this Japanese art of paper folding, the students developed spatial reasoning and enhanced understanding of basic geometric shapes. The activity gave the students an opportunity to explore their artistic skills and also played a vital role in enhancing their cognitive and fine motor skills. It was a treat to the eyes to see bright and life-size fishes all around.

Such training sessions motivate and empower the teachers so that they could empower our students and this truly serves our aim to create 'Leaders of Tomorrow'.
PRESIDIANS MASTER THE ART OF PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS @ DECLAMATION
Speech has the power to change the world and a good speaker is always able to captivate the audience with words.

All the participants exhibited their exceptional oratory skills, accent fluency in their speeches and put in best of their efforts. It was incredible to see young students speaking on issues like global terrorism, racial discrimination, life in the urban jungle, information technology and many other critical topics.
Organising such competitions at school broadens the horizons of intellect and critical thinking in students and highlights the true meaning of Declamation, that is- diction and eloquence.
