Presidium believes that academic learning and sports complement each other. The institution follows a comprehensive educational approach that includes sports as an important pillar of education. Sports are an important contributor in developing the overall personality of students. Other than sportsmanship, it promotes the qualities of leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance in students. It teaches the value of time and how it is important to note how a single minute can decide the fate of a young sportsmen in the field of competition. At Presidium, we believe in fostering sportsmanship and athletic excellence in our students and thus, several sports competitions are organized every year.
Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, and a vision. Presidium, in association with Eden Cricket Academy, brings young passionate cricket players an opportunity to get trained by experts and turn themselves into champions of tomorrow. Presidians are on their way to become future cricket legends, keeping with the school’s belief and commitment towards fostering excellence.
With excellent coaching and guidance Presidians are excelling in the field of sports too. Many inter-school Badminton championships are organized wherein participants from different branches come in with full fervour to showcase their talents. During the annual Inter Presidium Badminton tournament, the court gets packed with action and exhibits exciting matches and extraordinary winning shots being played by Presidians.
Gymnastics is a complex sport with many dramatic and subtle nuances. Education is perhaps the most important part of gymnastics wherein an activity can be naturally orchestrated to provide participants with unique and valuable experiences; it serves the participants more than any book. Though not a very common sport in India, at Presidium ace coaches and instructors are made available to train Presidians.
Athletics is powerful and transcendent. It can bridge gaps, bring people together and gives participants unbelievable, life-altering opportunities. Here at Presidium, we examine and understand several key benefits of having an established, successful athletics program in the school. Therefore, Presidium management leaves no-stone-unturned to find the best of everything for the students.
Yoga is the most important ancient Indian art that aims towards building a healthy mind within a healthy body. For that reason, it is considered to be the harmonizing system which rejuvenates the body, mind as well as the soul. It enhances the physical, spiritual and mental status of the human body. Presidians have joined the awakening of Yoga and make way for this soulful art in their lives, to welcome oodles of health and spiritual power in mind as well as body.
Chess is a mind game and children playing chess from an early age exhibit extraordinary memory skills. The competitive yet calm moves and playing styles help in developing the skills of concentration, critical thinking and abstract reasoning. To provide a platform to the young chess maestros of Presidium an Inter Presidium Chess Championship is organized annually. The students also participate and excel in many state and national level championships.
