THOUGHTFUL STUDENTS PROMOTE HABIT OF READING ON WORLD BOOK DAY
We at Presidium love the inquisitive minds of our young learners. But, what we relish the most is when they know how to fetch the answers to their questions by themselves. Nothing better than books can quench their thirst of knowledge, so, to celebrate the gala of words & the joy of reading, on World Book Day, the Presidians not only fostered their habit of reading, but also commended their favourite authors, illustrators and books. As they say, a little magic falls out everytime a book opens, on this day, the avid readers indeed became the magicians!
GREEN LOVERS AT PRESIDIUM GIVE A NEW DEFINITION TO THE EARTH DAY
“Love the earth as you would love yourself!” - John Denver
To connect this beautiful thought with the life of our students in meaningful way, we recently celebrated the Earth Week at Presidium, Palam Vihar. Earth Day supports protection of the environment, and has continuously drawn more and more people in each subsequent year. Considering that Earth Day is a great time for learning more about our environment, the young Presidians took small steps to care for our planet. The little ones spread awareness on Save Water, Save Electricity, Grow Plants, No Plastic, and Save Fuel. Students made bookmarks, giving positive messages like - Keep the Earth Clean, Hug a Tree, and Love the Earth. Council members took the campaign 'turn out the lights', wherein all classes were sensitized to turn off the lights and ACs in the classrooms, school and at home to promote 'Earth Hour'.

With the aim of bringing the history closer to the young Presidians of Palam Vihar, we recently took the initiative of sharing about the Jallianwala Bagh massacre with them in the form of a presentation and class discussion.
