STUDENTS ENRICH THEIR VOCABULARY WITH SYNONYMS & ANTONYMS
Communication is a vital part of every human being. One way of conveying information, written and oral in an efficient and effective way is expanding our vocabulary. Knowing many different synonyms and antonyms can help you diversify your writing and encourage you to think of other ways to say the same old thing. Furthermore, it can also improve both your oral skills and your writing skills, as noted in the following section. Finding words with similar meanings (Synonyms) that you can use in place of a word you use often can give you more ways to say the same thing. Understanding the opposite of a word (Antonyms), or exactly what the term does not represent – can lead to a more acute understanding of the word itself. This activity - Synonym and Antonym tree is a reinforcement of the concept in an interesting and engaging way. Students of Grade 3 participated with great zeal and enthusiasm.

PRESIDIANS BRING OUT THEIR CREATIVITY WITH ‘BEST OUT OF WASTE’
Our children live in an age where things are discarded without a second thought, only to buy and accumulate more than we often need. With the environmental crisis our world is facing, it's time to make an effort to change this. So, why not encourage our children to take this forward using simple methods such as upcycling and recycling? These are simple but effective ways for our children to understand the need of the hour - to make the best out of waste, for competitions or as a past-time. Your child will learn to reduce the waste generated in our homes and dumped in landfills. With this thought in mind Presidium organized an IntraClass Best Out of Waste Competition wherein students of Grade 1-3 participated with great zeal and confidence and made so many things out of waste material.
