Project of the Month- Being Happy
Smile smile smile...smile everyday. Smile in a way that it reaches your eyes, lights up your heart, and brightens your world all around.
A very important part of our 'Being' is staying happy. A happy mind can create and produce miracles. On the contrary, a gloomy soul can never reach out to people or reach bigger heights. Happiness is a state of mind, which is completely in our hands and not dependent on something outside. The students of Presidium Senior Secondary School will be empowered with this unique distinction through a self realization project 'Being Happy'. With the help of a self introspective presentation and activity, children will realize how they can stay happy irrespective of the circumstances.
This Curriculum for 'Being' has been designed to transform the inner self of our children so that they can use their knowledge, life skills and talents to create a happy, successful and powerful life for themselves.
