Parents, let us take the stress from your hands. Students, let us help you make the most of your study time & take that 'study guilt' away. This is is our seventh year running DSA Study Fest- the only event of its kind nationwide.  We know what your son/daughter needs ahead of exams and we can get the very best out of their studies, while encouraging, supporting and nurturing them through this extremely stressful time.
