PRESIDIANS ACE THE BIOLOGY PRACTICAL WITH EASE
“It is not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.” - Charles Darwin
Practical activities are not just motivational and fun, they also enable students to apply and extend their knowledge and understanding of biology in novel investigative situations, which can aid learning and memory, and stimulate interest. Presidium reaffirms the belief that practical education boosts a student's self-esteem, knowledge, and skills (both educationally and in the outside world), and enhances their transition into working life. For the purpose of developing practical skills by using equipment, tools, or technology, an activity was conducted for the students of Presidium, which created curiosity and observational skills about photosynthetic pigments by using different tools and techniques through animation and simulation. The goal of this activity was to provide students with a broad conceptual background in the biological sciences. Students understood the principle behind chromatography techniques and different types of pigments occurring in plant leaves.
COVID VACCINATION DRIVE FOR PRESIDIANS AT THE SCHOOL!
Covid Vaccination drive for the 15-18 year age group was organized in Presidium on 11th January 2022 in School at a familiar and convenient location for students to get vaccinated. The move is in line with the School's vision and commitment to ensure the health and well-being of its children. We always stand in support of the government to fight the virus and eventually make the nation Covid-19 free.
PRESIDIANS ENHANCE THEIR MATHEMATICS SKILLS
“The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics”—Paul Halmos
Mensuration is a branch of mathematics that studies the area, length, volume, lateral surface area, surface area, etc. of different shapes and figures. We come across many 2d and 3d shapes like square, rectangle, triangle, circle, and 3D shape bricks, ice-cream cones, football, etc. In order to develop a proper understanding of the volume and surface area of the frustum of a cone, a Math activity was conducted for the students of Presidium. This activity helped students to understand the internal part of frustum which is essential to comprehend formulae of the volume and surface area of the frustum of a cone. Students were found engaged and motivated to learn the formulae through this activity. This type of activity helped them a lot to derive the formulas for different solid structures in daily life. Students looked forward to many such activities which impart a conceptual understanding of mathematics.
STUDENTS ENRICH THEIR FRENCH VOCABULARY!
“Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.” ― Flora Lewis
Advertisement making helps to stimulate the flow of ideas and encourage students to think out of the box. Presenting the advertisement in front of the class also opens up a forum of discussion for the students. Learning will occur as students introspect and critically analyze. Students of Presidium were asked to make an advertisement for the sale of a house in French. There was a strong focus on the use of student tasks to promote productive language skills. The best advantage of this activity was that it facilitated teamwork and understanding along with facilitating creative thinking and extensive research and reading. Students were able to outline the ideas and present them.
