Every event at Presidium is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents and capabilities and learn new skills. The programmes we organise include Annual Day, Parenting Seminars, PMUN, Sports Day, Christmas Carnival and many other festive activities.
The Chairperson, Mrs. Sudha Gupta believes in boosting the confidence of students by recognising their exceptional talents and achievements. A formal luncheon is organised quarterly for honouring the young achievers of Presidium. In addition to this, a Letter of Appreciation signed by the Chairperson, along with a copy of individual portrait clicked with her, is given to the students.
This meet is more like an opportunity for students, where they get to personally interact with Mrs. Sudha Gupta, and share their phenomenal experiences.
Such initiatives at Presidium lift the spirits of young talents and inspire them to become future leaders.
Annual Day celebration, at Presidium, is a grand five-day event organised with great zeal and enthusiasm every year. It is often the most awaited event not only for the students, but also for the every member of the Presidium family.
Graced with the presence of Mrs. Sudha Gupta and top dignitaries from different fields, Presidium Annual Day celebration is an event worth watching.
Apart from the display of talents, one can also witness the inclination towards creating a better society in the stage shows performed by students. Such initiatives by young Presidians makes the whole event a cherished experience for school staff as well as parents and grandparents.
The event also includes a devoted period of time for felicitating the go-getters and best performers of school. The awards and prizes are more like a motivating force for the students to shine.
This grand event is made grander by the efforts of the students belonging to different academies like Out of the Box, Rhythm of the Soul, The Storytellers etc., and their supportive parents.
Our Sports Day celebration provides a great platform to the students to showcase the spirit of sportsmanship.
The entire event turns out to be an amazing experience for the students, parents as well as staff members when they watch activities of aerobics, yoga and pyramid presented by young Presidians. This event works as a medium to channelise the abundant energy in the right direction and help children discover their interests in outdoor activities.
Presidians also perform stage acts to make every onlooker realise the significance of sports and games in the overall personality development. Also, prizes and medal distribution is part of ceremony as it helps to instil and boost the confidence of the students.
ANNUAL MUSICAL THEATRE
Apart from inculcating the values of quality education, we also encourage students to excel in their innate talent in the arena of theatrics that make a palpable and worthy contribution in their overall development. In Annual Musical Theatre, students from senior wings exhibit various inspiring plays as well as dance performances.
Every play showcased by students brings forth a catharsis of emotions right from Love, Joy, Disgust, Anger, Peace and various others that leave an indelible mark on the spectators.
This event is followed by the much awaited Felicitation Ceremony where the students are acknowledged for their meritorious achievement on the basis of Subject and Over All Excellence by the revered Chairperson, Mrs. Sudha Gupta.
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AWARDS
Academic Excellence Awards is a grandiose affair organised every year to offer an ideal platform to students where they can explore, express and showcase their talents, knowledge as well as life skills. The objective is to bring forth the innovative ideas of every student irrespective of his/her academy.
Games like 'Mind-boggling', 'Number Cruncher', 'Weave-a-Story', Do-It-Yourself experiments, etc. make this event more interactive. Our chairperson, Mrs. Sudha Gupta, believes in fostering every individual talent; thus, making sure that no student is left unheard.
As the students write the final page in their chapter of life called ‘School’, we come up with an initiative to let them know that they will always remain an inseparable part of the Presidium family. The signatures, skills and achievements of all our Presidians shall forever be embedded on the walls of the school. The Citation Ceremony is specially curated by Presidium for its beloved students which sums up all these wonderful emotions, nostalgia, tears and excitement.
Adorned in those shiny black gowns and caps, the students enter the premises with euphoria. Each one of them then lights a ceremonial lamp which symbolises that they are ready to spread their wings and soar high in the skies of success with the blessings of their heads, teachers and mentors. They are presented with a personalised citation which glorifies their personalities and journeys at school, from being ordinary to an extraordinary leader of tomorrow, all geared up to take on the world.
The parents are welcomed to express their views and experiences they had, as a part of Presidium. With tears in the eyes and faces lit with smiles, our Presidians share some of the most amazing experiences they’ve lived at the school right from when they landed their first step here. Mrs.Sudha Gupta congratulates the students for their fruitful journey with Presidium and wishes them luck for the future. The ceremony culminates with sprinkles of blessings as the students part with the aim of making their school proud in all arenas of life.
With the year nearing its end, the school observes yet again an annual spectacle where joy and grief are at their unique confluence- the crossroad from where the children can see a vast world beckoning to them to explore it.
Parting brings tears in every eye! At the Farewell, Presidians reminisce their wonderful years spent at school, from their teachers who lead them on the path to success, their peers some of who will remain life-long buddies to the premises where every corner and every room tells a story. The students proudly share their experiences and their future plans. After which, their juniors surprise them with special dance, music and drama performances. The Farewell ceremony culminates with 'Showers of Blessings' from teachers and heads of Presidium for the students stepping out into a new world of competencies.
Investiture Ceremony is another grandiose affair that is held with zeal and enthusiasm in all the branches every year. During this ceremony, selected students are honoured with their respective badges, each serving to remind leaders about the bag of responsibilities they will be holding for the academic year.
Presidium gives credence to the guiding philosophy 'Be What You Want To Be' fostering students to be the leaders of tomorrow. In addition to the freedom to follow their dreams, we also instill true values in them by providing them a charge of responsibilities at Investiture Ceremony.
Our Chairperson, Mrs Sudha Gupta, also shares words of wisdom with students for appreciating and encouraging them to put in honest efforts for every endeavour and become an inspiration for others. Also, the newly appointed student incharges express their gratitude and took an oath to follow their duties with complete loyalty.
PRESIDIUM MODEL UNITED NATIONS
Presidium Model United Nations is a grand academic event where not only Presidians, but also the students from different educational institutions gather to interact and learn about international relations, diplomacy, global issues and the United Nations. Modelled after the UN, PMUN has participants from different schools from all over the world, who act as delegates to form committees and conduct the sessions on global issues. Apart from critical thinking, leadership qualities and teamwork this epic event also trains students in public speaking, debating, research and writing skills.
Youth Parliament serves as an excellent platform for the youth to not only speak up, but also make an impact on the country’s change agenda. It basically highlights the need for thinking change for taking the country forward. We, at Presidium, inspire the young leaders to share their views in an organised way through medium of Youth Parliament where best debaters, policy makers and opinion makers flourish. This is how the bright future leaders emerge with requisite qualities and skills.
The objective is bringing forth the innovative ideas that can truly serve the agenda for change.
At Presidium, we believe that to celebrate different festivals is to celebrate India’s diversity. We celebrate every festival with great zeal, but the wintertime comes with a grand celebration of Christmas, an exciting affair that has a bagful of surprises for everyone including children and adults.
The gaily-decorated food stalls, thematic interiors, captivating activities like tattoo making, magic shows, exciting games like tambola and shooting, joy rides and many other adventure sports add shine and excitement to whole event. Add to it the dynamic dance performance by Presidians. Further, the gift distribution by Santa makes the event more gleeful for every visitor.
Our Chairperson, Mrs. Sudha Gupta, firmly believes that how we bring up children will make a profound difference to the future of humanity.
We, at Presidium, not only emphasise on providing our students with the best of everything, but also to the parents who are simply great. We organise parenting seminars to educate parents on parenting skills. We include a number of interactive activities to make the experience a transformative one.
The objective of such seminars is to work towards social transformation by helping parents to be better so that they can raise children who will grow into responsible citizens who make the world a better place.
