BEHES WORKSHOP

In an attempt to encourage students to perform with a new and cutting-edge format of debate in India, allowing enormous freedom of expression and knowledge, a “Behes workshop” is often conducted at Presidium. It is a thought provoking workshop. Students in this program exchange a variety of facts, statistics, rhetoric, and arguments and a lot of research work goes into their arguments. The program allows immense research, analytical, collaborative, and linguistic skills which put their oratory faculties to test as well. Post the first round, students are selected for a ‘Maha Behes' round which is held on the last day of the workshop. ‘Behes’ a useful way to refresh one’s knowledge when they are already familiar with the debates.

DANCE WORKSHOP

Dancing improves our general well-being, boosts our self-esteem and also improves our social skills. Not only does it train our brain and our body’s motor skills but it also is an excellent exercise for our entire body. Keeping these benefits in mind, our dance workshops are here to inspire, educate and boost confidence of Presidians through dance. This includes Indian dance demonstrations and workshops or storytelling using Indian dance hand gestures. Our workshops help students to explore the rhythms of dance and also understand more about Indian culture. Presidians work creatively and learn to tell stories using facial expressions and hand gestures. They are taught a range of movement ideas from classical to folk using original Indian music.

ASTRONOMY

To explore the fascinating world of Astronomy, we at Presidium organise workshops that nurture our young league of students and aspiring scientists to learn, grow and follow in the footsteps of esteemed Indian astronomers. They are given an experience of astronomy in school premises itself as they experience the wonders of the Universe, through talks, hands-on activities and telescope viewings. We aim at churning out innovative and exciting hands-on astronomy education. We start with a brief computer-based presentation of the existing planets, moon, asteroids, comets and the sun. We also provide availability of detailed 3D models of different asteroids, man-made spacecrafts, and solar system terrains for children to explore the immediate surrounding universe.

HEALTH AND HYGIENE WORKSHOP

Various demonstrations and lectures are organized in our “Health and Hygiene Workshop” for generating awareness of students towards the importance of good health and cleanliness. The students are involved in a Mock Session on existing practices of cleaning in the house, outside house, personal hygiene maintained, water hygiene, food hygiene etc. It also focused on Food Hygiene wherein they are given a demonstration on how to treat vegetables and fruits before consumption that is, washing, cutting, cooking and consuming.

On the other hand, special sessions are organised for girls wherein the whole scientific process of menstruation is explained to them in an interactive and simple way. They are taught how to take necessary precautions in order to be perfectly healthy.

MADHUBANI PAINTING WORKSHOP

Presidium School recently organised a two-day Madhubani painting workshop. Artisans taught the participants the ancient art of Madhubani. Nearly fifty participants attended the workshop which included families of students, faculty, staff and their families. Though this folk art has been practiced for centuries it started to gain national recognition only in the last few decades. Painting is done with fingers, twigs, brushes, nib-pens, and matchsticks, using natural dyes and pigments, and is typically based on mythological and folk themes. A variety of inventive patterns were made by talented Presidians with hatching and stippling. This workshop helped students in learning the nuances of Indian folk art.

Mind workshops enable our students to enhance concentration and attain peace. These workshops are also known for its scientific, well planned and extremely successful interventions in available resources through behavioural training, coaching, mind mapping, leveraging creativity, leadership development, handwriting analysis, stress management, women’s empowerment and so on.

MICROSOFT WORKSHOP

Windows stands for- "Wide Interactive Network Development for Office work Solution".
Windows is the operating system, the software that makes it tick and provides a platform for programs, like your web browser, to run on. Knowledge of the applications of Windows is a must in everyday routine. This is why, in order to keep the students up-to-date with the operating system, Microsoft workshops are conducted. Systemic and well planned classes are organised by an expert with the help of practical classes using the system which makes it more interactive and interesting for the students.

TEACHERS’ TRAINING WORKSHOP

Just like the training required for any specialized profession, teachers must be trained before they enter the classroom, and they must receive ongoing training even as they work in the classroom. All this training gives new teachers the greatest chance of success as well as sustain veteran teachers as they meet new challenges in education. At Presidium, Teachers’ Training Workshop is a continuous process that helps the teachers in learning teaching skills, master new knowledge, develop new proficiency, which in turn, helps improve students’ learning. Teachers are provided with proper training on up-to-date information and new research on classroom management, on emerging technology tools for the classroom, new curriculum resources, and more. In order to achieve teacher’s maximum potential, ongoing professional development workshops are conducted by the experts at Presidium and are diligently implemented in their schedules.

KATHAK WORKSHOP

When we talk about Indian classical dance, the first thing that comes to the mind is: Kathak
Kathak originates from the word ‘Katha’ meaning story. It is a dance form which evolves and sharpens the expression of the performer because this dance form is all about expressing a story through dance. With the motive of spreading awareness and promoting India’s rich culture and heritage, Presidium school takes the onus of conducting Kathak workshops throughout the branches. Many Kathak Maestros are invited to guide and inspire the students. Such workshops not only develop a student’s interest in our rich heritage but also make education even more holistic.
