Abstract: 
This study is based on the use of an enrichment programme
on the cognitive functioning, academic scores and behaviours of two
Secondary One students from the Normal (Technical) stream. Both
students generally displayed low levels of academic achievement.
One of the students (Student A) was a special need student who
displayed great difficulty in getting along well with others and
adapting to the environment. The other student (Student B),
however, was a very shy and reserved student. The enrichment
programme involves the use of mediated learning experience and
selected tasks for over a period of seven weeks. The study shows
that the enrichment programme had a positive effect on the students’
cognitive functioning, academic scores and school related
behaviours. Feedback from the students’ teachers, counsellors and
support staff on the students’ behaviours were very positive. The
improvement started to show up after 5 weeks into the programme.
