THE SCIENCE OF TODAY IS THE TECHNOLOGY OF TOMORROW
Education does not simply mean the ability to read and write. It is a wide term used to describe the complete process of development. Education in today’s scenario aims at the holistic development of the children. The holistic development is only achievable with the pragmatic approach to education. The pragmatic approach imparts learning by doing and experiencing things. Activities such as exhibitions, presentations, projects, etc are the medium of wholesome development of the students in schools. Students of grade 4 and 5 engaged in such activities to enhance their knowledge and making learning a fun experience. It provided a great platform for the students to present their talent and boosted their confidence to outshine their personality.
PRESIDIANS SEEK BLESSINGS OF LORD SHIVA ON MAHASHIVRATRI
Maha Shivaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated annually in honor of Lord Shiva. It is a significant and solemn festival in Hinduism that marks a remembrance of "overcoming darkness and ignorance" in life and the world. It is observed by remembering Shiva and chanting prayers, fasting, and meditating on ethics and virtues such as self-restraint, honesty, non-injury to others, forgiveness, and the discovery of Shiva. The sacred chant "Om Namaha Shivaya" is chanted throughout the day. On this auspicious occasion, the students of Presidium put forth a colorful presentation. The Program commenced with 'Shiv Vandana, ' followed by a spectacular theater act that was both value-based and informative. The students dressed up in beautiful attires and danced to the tune of Shiv Bhakti.
PRESIDIANS ACE THEIR LINGUISTIC SKILLS WITH ROLE-PLAY COMPETITION
Stories make a positive contribution to the development of the students’ thinking skills and comprehension. Keeping this in mind Presidium organized a Role Play Competition for the students of Grade 1,2 and 3. The children were dressed in their favorite characters. Each student expressed how they are inspired by their characters. The day was remembered for persistent cheerfulness as there was a bright infectious joviality in the laughter of the children.
PRESIDIANS ENJOY A VISIT TO CONSTRUCTION SITE
Field trips enrich and expand the curriculum, strengthen observation skills by immersing children into sensory activities, increase children’s knowledge in a particular subject area and expand children’s awareness of their community. Students might be good at reciting and remembering things, but they often don’t make the connection unless they experience it first hand. Keeping this view in mind, we took our students to a visit to a construction site. Students observed the difference between a variety of construction material, the importance of teamwork, and how coordinated work results beautifully using concrete. Field trips connect the dots for students by providing real experiences related to all content areas.
