World Water Day, held on 22 March every year, focuses on the importance of freshwater. This year the focus is groundwater, an invisible resource with an impact visible everywhere. Groundwater feeds springs, rivers, lakes, and wetlands, and seeps into oceans. Groundwater supplies a large proportion of the water we use for drinking, sanitation, food production, and industrial processes. To create awareness amongst all, Presidians took a step to make others aware of saving water. They created posters, slogans and enacted role play on ways of saving water. We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource.
Holi is about celebrating happiness with friends & family. People forget their troubles & indulge in this festival to celebrate brotherhood. In other words, we forget our enmities & get into the festival spirit. Holi is called the festival of colours as people play with colours & apply them to each other's faces to get coloured in the essence of the festival. Presidians celebrated Holi (the triumph of good over evil) with full zeal & enthusiasm by applying a tilak of organic colours on their forehead. Holi songs echoed & children came dressed up in colourful clothes to celebrate the occasion.
National Immunization Day is celebrated every year on March 16. National Immunization Day, also called National Vaccination Day, is observed to convey the importance of vaccination.

They explained the meaning and purpose of the day through posters, artwork etc.
Rangoli is a traditional art form of different shapes or patterns.

Time plays a significant role in our life. Students of Presidium Grade 1A learned about hours and minutes as the units of time. They made a clock using cardboard and ice cream sticks. At this age, even when students do not know how to read the clock, they know the time when they do certain activities in routine. This activity enables them to share the experience and motivates them to learn to read a clock.
The festival of Mahashivratri is one of the major Hindu festivals celebrated each year in reverence of Lord Shiva. Shiva is the energy believed to make every living being alive. We are able to breathe, eat, walk and carry out our day-to-day activities because of Shiva. The festival was celebrated with full devotion and spirituality in the virtual classes of Presidium. Students chanted the Mahamrityunjaya mantra and explained the same. The students and the teachers were filled with spiritual fervour. The day was marked by students' speeches, slogans, and poster making.
Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. It gives hope to their ideas. To encourage imagination and creativity amongst the students, students of Presidium had organized a Puppet Making Competition for grade 4 . Our creators made innovative and attractive puppets by using different waste materials. The objective of this competition was to develop the creative talent of the students and to encourage the craftsmanship and artfulness of the students.
