STORYTELLING COMPETITION IGNITE A LOVE FOR READING IN STUDENTS
A wise man once said, “After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
It’s the stories that give wings to our imagination and take us to places beyond the boundaries of our physical world and into the land of fairies, dragons, and wishing trees. It is in our imagination that we embrace things and situations that we shy away from the real world. Since time immemorial, storytelling has been an integral part of our childhood. To keep the tradition going and incite curiosity and the love for reading in children, a storytelling competition was organised by Presidium for grade Nursery/Prep students. The young, enthusiastic storytellers armed with their props came forth with beautiful tales. Some stories gave them food for thought, and some reinforced moral values. The stories were adjudged based on the expression, confidence, and presentation skills of the students.

STUDENTS ENHANCE THEIR BIOLOGY KNOWLEDGE WITH PRACTICAL ACTIVITY

Using a practical activity helps in knowledge retention: Many students learn more efficiently by actually doing activities. Presidium reaffirms the belief that practical education boosts a student's self-esteem, knowledge, and skills (both educationally and on the outside world) and enhances their transition into working life.
