GARDEN VISIT: PRESIDIANS ENRICH THEIR PERSPECTIVE OF THEME GARDEN
Excursions are an important and effective means of motivating students and engaging them in active learning experiences as they provide a chance to students to explore and observe their surroundings.
We at Presidium, ensure that children learn through all possible ways, not just through books and classroom teaching.

They indluged in fun-filled activities like using their knowledge of measurement to measure plants in the garden, using coloured pencils to take the impressions of barks, and collecting the fallen leaves, barks, stems and flowers in their treasure boxes. To sum it up, it was an unforgettable experience full of learning and fun!
