YOUNG MINDS UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF NUMBER NAMES
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin
We, at Presidium, love the inquisitive minds of our young learners. We relish the most when they know how to fetch answers to their questions themselves. Students know how to count and say, “1”, “2”,”3”, till the number “10”. But they don’t always understand that each number they are saying is quantity. Keeping this in mind, to inculcate the concept of number names in students, an activity named “Guess my number” was done with students of Grade 1. Students were given flashcards with number names written on them. On calling the number, students were required to identify the corresponding numeral written on the floor. This activity helped students develop the ability to think through a solution and to identify the number as a quantity.
BUDDHA PURNIMA: STUDENTS SPREAD MESSAGE OF UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD
Buddha Purnima commemorates and celebrates the birth and enlightenment of Lord Buddha. A special assembly on the occasion of Buddha Purnima was organized by grade 2 A of Presidium. To absorb the spirit of this occasion, students dramatized the story of Prince Siddhartha. A captivating performance was presented by the young students. The message of being kind to other fellow beings and not quarreling with each other was also conveyed to the students. The young learners came together to commemorate the might, wisdom, and preaching of Lord Buddha, whose emphasis on conduct and righteousness has greatly augmented Indian society. A discussion on the life and times of Gautama Buddha and Buddha Purnima took place, wherein various teachings of Gautama Buddha like his insights on the strength of mind and soul were shared. This was followed by a session of meditation with teachers and students chanting "Buddham Saranam Gacchami" which unfolded an ambiance full of calmness and tranquility.

Apoorv believes that hard work is one of the most effective ways for achieving success in any field and education is no exception to that.
