Every building says a lot about its occupants. Our school buildings too eloquently convey what their inhabitants are upto: transforming themselves into leaders. Detailed attention has been paid to make the interiors warm, inviting and interesting. every brick that has gone into the construction of our buildings also contributes towards the building our future leaders.
Dull classrooms with just furniture and a blackboard is not what you will see in Presidium classes. The classrooms are designed in a way that fosters excellence and motivates students towards better performance. Each classroom is aesthetically designed and integrated with smart boards to make both the learning and teaching interactive. With technological support, our skilled teachers provide guidance to each individual.
“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers.
And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to
learning are always open.” Laura Bush
A treasure trove and storehouse of knowledge, a library is a place to learn, think and share ideas.
Presidium has provided students with a library architecture that is inspirational and conducive to learning, improved communication and interaction.
To fire Presidians’ imagination and keeping the access easy, computers have been incorporated in the library so that a world of knowledge is readily available to students.
“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new
angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” Albert Einstein
The belief that Nobel laureates are not created in huge research facilities, but in the humble school labs, lead to the creation of hi-tech science labs at Presidium. Science is different from any other subject. In order to understand its concepts, one has to look beyond the books and conventional classroom teaching, this is where the labs come-in. It is imperative for the school to get all updated equipments so that students get to explore experiment and form their own conclusions and that what Presidium aims at.
Just like science, mathematics cannot be restricted to classrooms and books, this is why Presidium school has a built in mathematics laboratory. It is a place where Presidians can experiment and explore patterns and ideas through implementation. It is a place where one can find a collection of games, puzzles, and other teaching and learning tools. These tools are meant to be used both by the students on their own and also with their teacher to explore the world of mathematics. It is a place where anyone can generate problems and struggle to get an answer. It is a space to explore and design new mathematical activities. So, the maths lab should not be used to assess students’ knowledge of mathematics rather it should be considered a place where students gain knowledge beyond the curriculum.
“Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the
way we learn.” Steve Jobs
Information technology is not an option, it has become a hardcore necessity and the new model of integrating technology into the curriculum means that computers are on demand throughout the school day. Presidium’s well equipped computer lab serves as the center for teaching computer use to the students by qualified computer teachers. These labs are also used by Presidians for research, or for creating technology-based projects, multimedia presentations and creatively present the content that they have gathered after comprehensive search from multiple sources.
“There are an endless number of things to discover about robotics. A lot of it is just
too fantastic for people to believe.” Daniel H. Wilson
Robotics lab consists of lego robotics; mechanical robotics, etc which can be used in experiments by the students in a comfortable school environment. It is a perfect outlet for students as robotics is in the forefront of technology. Moreover, a strong robotics curriculum can create leaders by boosting the confidence levels, teamwork skills, problem solving and training for future careers. The up-to-date Robotics lab at Presidium encourages question based approach of learning that helps students exercise their imagination through experimental challenges.
Playgrounds are places where children's play can take off and flourish. Play is the key to physical, mental, intellectual and social well being of children. Presidium outdoor play areas are large enough and designed in such a way that children run, jump and hide, cheer, whistle and explore the natural world. School’s playgrounds play important role in their daily life for fulfilling their interest, development and learning needs; it is a child’s window to the external world and forms the foundation of social, intellectual, physical and emotional skills that are requisite for success in school as well as life. To accomplish this, we allow students to explore different environments by providing them playfields and facilities for basketball, Cricket, Taekwondo, Swimming, etc.
Apart from a huge outdoor play area in all the branches, Presidium also has Sports Centre that offers a range of indoor games including table tennis, chess, and pool. The objective is to include every game that can enhance their ability to not only focus on the goal, but also to help them create their very own innovative approach to success. Simply put, the sports centre ignites the potential of every student to follow their chosen path.
The Activity Rooms at Presidium are magical jukeboxes that spur every Presidian
into action. Equipped with a wide range of performing arts, our spacious activity
rooms are fit for every session - be it dance, music or yoga.
The very idea of introducing activity rooms is to nurture the inner potential of every student, to give wings to their creativity and to enhance their learning skills. Activity rooms play a big role in strengthening the roots of talent in every student.
Keeping in mind the safety and necessity of first-aid in schools, Presidium accommodates a well-equipped and well-furnished medical room, which is accessible during school hours. Well-trained nursing attendants are always in place to ensure that all the emergencies are taken care of. Regular awareness programs are conducted for assisting students about various aspects of health education (diseases), first aid, healthy habits, diet management and stress management along with sessions of yoga and meditation. In addition to the awareness sessions, routine medical checkups are also conducted every year to keep a check on health issues.
