Woodblock printing on textiles is the process of printing patterns on textiles, usually of linen, cotton, or silk, by means of incised wooden blocks. It is the earliest, simplest, and slowest of all methods of textile printing. Block printing by hand is a slow process. However, it is capable of yielding highly artistic results, some of which are unobtainable by any other method. Grade 3 students of Presidium participated wholeheartedly in an activity wherein they did beautiful block printing on a piece of cloth using fabric colors and blocks of different designs
India is predominantly an agricultural country, and agriculture is the main source of income as a backbone for India's economic development. Farmers' Day is celebrated every year on 23 December, on the birthday of the 5th Prime Minister of India, Choudhary Charan Singh, also a farmer's leader, who introduced many policies to improve the lives of the Indian farmers. To pay him tribute, the government in 2001 decided to celebrate his birth anniversary as National Farmers' Day. This Day is celebrated to promote awareness among the country's citizens to understand the importance of the contribution by the farmers in society for the country's overall economic and social development. Presidians celebrated this Day with great enthusiasm to praise the farmers as they are the spine of India. Students showcased this through their posters and slogans.
Clocks are instruments that measure and show the time. An Analogue Clock is a clock or watch with moving hands and hours marked from 1 to 12 to depict time. Our Grade 2 young Presidians had explored their understanding while creating the Analogue Clock on their own. The activity helped them in revisiting all important points related to an Analogue Clock, i.e., its three hands, the Hour hand, the Minute hand, and the Second hand, the difference between the size of hands and the arrangement of numbers 1-12. Students enjoyed a lot making these clocks.
Human Rights Day is annually observed on 10th December.

Presidians joined hands to reaffirm the importance of human rights in re-building the desired world. They showcased global solidarity through posters, slogans, and speeches.
