Presidium observed World Day Against Child Labour to bring attention to the global issue of child labour and to find ways to eradicate it. The day is marked for spreading awareness about children's adverse mental and physical issues forced into child labour worldwide. The day also works as an opportunity for people to develop efficient mechanisms to combat issues that lead to child labour. Teachers conducted many virtual activities to showcase a normal childhood for the many children in the age group 5 to 17 and provide them with adequate education, proper health care, leisure time, or just basic freedom.
Presidium celebrated World Oceans Day by discussing the different ways that litter impacts the oceans and where it can end up. We then looked at the different ocean heroes and how these people and children have helped save our oceans. The students then created their poster explaining who their ocean hero is and why. We learned about the importance of looking after our oceans by reducing plastic use and using alternatives to plastic. Here we are role-playing, disposing of litter correctly, and sharing this message with others. We have been thinking about how we can reuse our rubbish, especially plastic, and make better use of it as we were not happy about finding out that people's rubbish can often find its way to the oceans, which can cause harm to the sea life. With our recycling, we decided to create some artwork to remind ourselves to always recycle what we can.
World Environment Day was celebrated at Presidium with enthusiasm, wherein various activities were designed for students to perform from their homes, thus keeping them aware of the environmental issues. On this occasion, students took part in many online activities, enjoyed playing online Nature scavenger games, and recited poems on Nature. They made eco–friendly bags and posters and wrote slogans on the theme 'save the environment.' They also planted saplings at their homes. Teachers advised the students to protect the natural environment and take measures to engage in environment-friendly activities. They sensitized them to the issues of climate change, deterioration of natural resources, etc. The activities helped the students hone their creative skills.
Presidium organized a Poster Making Activity for the students of Class VIII. The objective was to ignite the fire of imagination and creativity in the students; the theme was ‘Pictorial Awareness Campaign against Covid 19.’ Students were asked to express their ideas through paintings and sketches.

Hence, the activity was a positive conclusion of team spirit and creative learning with the successful efforts of the students.
