School time is a transformative experience for all students. The transformation is more evident in students who regularly involve themselves in activities beyond the classroom, such as organising cultural or technical festivals that demand much from them and also reward them with skill development in return. School Fests offer a platform for such an involvement, the outcome of which are learning skills that are beyond the realms of the textbook — leadership, crisis management, time management, persistence, multitasking, and public speaking, to name a few.
