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.
