THE MAGICAL WAND OF APPRECIATION ENHANCES PRESIDIANS' CONFIDENCE
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness!
To appreciate and acknowledge the qualities of our young students, a special Appreciation Day assembly was recently organized at Presidium. The Presidians were acknowledged with ‘appreciation certificates’, covering 17 qualities, identified by their class teachers. These attributes are courage, creativity, curiosity, confidence, friendliness, leadership, independence, positive attitude, enthusiasm, good behaviour, communication, good behaviour, attentiveness, team spirit, excellence in sports, excellence in dance and taking initiative. This noble idea originates from our honourable chairperson, Mrs. Sudha Gupta, who believes that each child has a distinctive quality and it is our responsibility to recognize the same and stimulate each one of them continuously. The event proved that appreciation truly works like a magic wand!
