DIWALI

Diwali is the most enjoyable, sacred and loveliest festival in the Hindu religion and is celebrated every year with great joy and enthusiasm. At Presidium, we leave no stone unturned to celebrate the festival with full fervour. A special assembly and pooja is conducted to welcome Goddess Lakshmi. A loud and clear message is spread by our Presidians to celebrate a safe and happy Diwali without crackers. It is the festival of lights and cleanliness, not the festival of firecrackers.

HOLI

The vibrancy of colours is something that brings in a lot of positivity in our lives and Holi being the festival of colours is actually a day worth rejoicing. Celebrated in almost every part of the country, it is also sometimes called as the “festival of love” as on this day people get to unite together forgetting all resentments. This message is pretty visible in Presidium when all the students and teachers get together and celebrate Holi with Gulal.

EID

The beauty of living in a secular country is that we get to see and enjoy the traditions of each festival irrespective of caste or creed. Eid is celebrated with full fervour at Presidium. Teachers make sure that no students get spared from the warm hug of Eid Mubarak. Students get together and savour on the traditional cuisine of Sevaiya which they share amongst each other and also ensure to spread the peace message of living in unity.

LOHRI

The beats of the Dhol, the warmth of the holy fire and sheer happiness of students dancing around in circles, whilst offering peanuts and popcorns. This is just a glimpse of Lohri celebrations at Presidium. Lohri is a traditional welcome of longer days and sun's journey to the northern hemisphere by Sikhs and Hindus in Punjab. Students are made aware of the core essence of this auspicious festival.

GURPURAB

The biggest festival of the Sikh community is celebrated in a grand way at Presidium. With an aim to spread the teachings of the first guru of Sikhs, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, students of Presidium celebrate the auspicious occasion of Gurupurab by conducting a special assembly. Students sing ‘shabad’ and chant the ‘ek onkar’ mantra. Most importantly, the day highlights that the essence of all religions lies in oneness of God.

GANESH CHATURTHI

The echo of “Ganpati Bappa Moriya” can be heard in the hallways of each Presidium branch on this special occasion. Students are encouraged to make eco-friendly figurines of Lord Ganesha which are then immersed as per proper traditions. In a way, such organised festivity and worships lead to an upsurge in enthusiasm and devotion amongst students.

DUSSEHRA

Dussehra, a festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil, is joyously marked at Presidium school with a lot of religious zeal. The program usually begins with a prayer and a message on Dussehra followed by a bhajan “Ram Stuti” and a presentation on why we celebrate Dussehra. Through theatre, students represent the story and moral behind the festival in a mesmerising manner.

JANMASHTAMI

On this day Lord Krishna was born on earth as a human form. For this reason, this day is celebrated by people with great elegance all over India and in Presidium too. The main significance of this festival lies in encouraging the goodwill and discouraging the bad will. The students participate in pooja, rock the swing of ‘kanha’ and sing prayers which spread a blissful aura in the school.
