‘When a tiger walks free in its natural habitat, nature feels proud. Save tigers!’
Tiger is the national animal of India and half of world’s wild tigers reside in this country. On the occasion of International Tiger Day 2018, students of grade 2 conducted a special assembly to raise awareness about tiger conservation. Students read out an article pertaining to the theme of the emblematic tiger and a stirring poem to motivate all to become sensitive to the cause, especially, the youth as they are the future stakeholders of the country. The students pledged to save tigers and raise awareness about their importance in maintaining the balance of the ecosystem.
KARGIL DIWAS ASSEMBLY: DESH KE AMAR JAWAN, APKO HUMARA SALAAM!
Today, let us respect the nation.
Let us recall the devotion of the war heroes,
Who sacrificed their lives for the nation.
Today, let us bow to them,
And thank them for hoisting the Indian flag high!
Keeping in this inspirational quote in mind, the students of Presidium Hisar organised a special assembly on Kargil Vijay Diwas. It is important for all of us to understand that we sleep in our houses without any worry because the soldiers are awake at the borders to ensure our safety. The students presented a thought provoking mime portraying the life of a soldier and how in Kargil War, India emerged victorious. They amazed the audience by their scintillating performances depicting patriotic fervour and the strong feeling of unity and brotherhood among the people of our country.

It was very difficult to decide the best speaker amongst them all. However, the the title of the best club went to Victor Club, Mudit of grade 9 won the best speaker (Favour) and Keshav Bansal was the Best Speaker(against). Congratulations to all the winners.
