The young brigade of Presidium, once again caught the rapt attention of the audience, at the Inter-class Skit Competition. All the students were at their creative best, as there was a limit to the number of properties that could be used by each team. The powerful performances of the budding actors transported the audience to the realm of cinema. The day though was thoroughly entertaining but it was also hugely successful in providing food for thought. The topics for the event were carefully chosen and mirrored the concerns of society at large. It was a novice experience, as the titles of the plays were selected out of some popularly known idioms, around which the students crafted a storyline intelligently and appropriately. Although the event was competitive in nature, the thunderous applause that each one of them received by the gathering was testimony to the fact that each one of them was a winner, as all the plays had conveyed a powerful message.
Nelson Mandela, the inspirational Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, personifies the way in which the human spirit can triumph over hate and evil by embracing peace and reconciliation, in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Students of Presidium paid homage to the great leader by celebrating ‘International Nelson Mandela Day.' The participants put up an exuberant show and accentuated that individuals can challenge unjust systems and create fairer societies by exploring Nelson Mandela’s struggle against apartheid. Everyone was enthralled with the captivating performance. They were filled with awe and realized that he was an incredibly selfless man who played a major role in rewriting the history of South Africa. The event ended with thoughtful words by the teachers who motivated the students to become more responsible and further added that the world needs more leaders like Nelson Mandela- sacrificing, dedicated, and focused. We should consider ourselves lucky to have been born in an era in which Mandela existed.

Various other activities were also conducted to mark the occasion.
Art and craft activities have always been a favoured medium to stimulate and develop creativity within students. Poster making and poster presentation are some of the ways of voicing the expression of learning among students. The theme of the poster making was 'Secularism.' Secularity is best understood, not as being anti-religious, but as being 'religiously neutral.' Students of Presidium were introduced to this topic and they were extremely zealous to demonstrate their views on this theme and highlighted the significance of 'Being India a Secular state.' It was an overwhelming activity, where students showcased their understanding of the theme.
