Presidium celebrated the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji with great zeal and enthusiasm. A special assembly was conducted to mark the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Students came dressed in traditional Sikh attire. The assembly started by paying floral tribute to Guru Nanak Dev followed by information related to his life and teachings.
To enhance the understanding and construct sentences using the prepositions, a Preposition Activity was conducted at Presidium. In this activity, they had to combine prepositions of position with household objects. The students were asked to put the object in different positions with the help of glass and object. They enjoyed the session because they found this activity very compelling. They were able to distinguish prepositions of time and place from each other and also recognize prepositional phrases and state that they were composed of prepositions and their objects. They understood the concept because they learned with the help of learning by doing.
Presidians celebrated Children’s day with great festive fervour, to commemorate the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was extremely fond of children.

Students understood that the major part of our planet’s surface is covered with water which we have to use judiciously.
The bond between siblings is one like no other.

It celebrates the loving bond between brothers and sisters. Students of Presidium celebrated this festival of bond with great zeal. The little ones dressed up in colourful traditional attire to get the festive look made beautiful cards for their siblings and many more. Students were made aware of the significance of this festival and celebrated it with full enthusiasm across India.
It is time to remove the darkness of ignorance within us and replace it with the light of hope and knowledge instead.

All these activities brought lots of joy and happiness sparkling on the face of each Presidian.
