Presidium commenced its new session for the year 2016-17 today. There was a sense of excitement and enthusiasm throughout the school premises.

Our budding scientists had a great time exploring the Space, its elements and the equipment used for space travel. Students of Grades Ist to 8th from Presidium, Faridabad participated in the activity and enjoyed making models of Rockets, Meteors and Comets etc. Students used their imaginations extensively and made some beautiful models. They also took delight in learning the skills of observation through a Telescope. The experience was very knowledgeable and exciting for students especially after the Planetarium simulation program they experienced a few days ago.
There doesn’t have to be special occasions to have fun with your peers and friends. At Presidium, we believe that children should be provided a leisure time to help them develop skills that are crucial for their holistic development. Keeping this approach intact, today we organised a fun filled picnic at school for Presidians of Grade Nursery, Pre Nursery and Prep. The students were excited to enjoy the picnic time and participated in a range of adventurous activities with full enthusiasm. Play time is always fun and gives a chance to children to develop physical strength, dexterity, body coordination and social skills.
