James* was an average 13-year-old Normal (Technical) student who discovered Project CABIN at his school. There, he met Singapore Children's Society's counsellor who was always around to listen to his concerns.
When James topped his cohort during the year-end examinations, he was promoted to the Normal (Academic) stream the following year. However, James' results plummeted thereafter due to a more challenging curriculum. He lost focus in his studies and eventually dropped out of school at Secondary 3.
Despite not attending school for nine months, our counsellor from Project CABIN never gave up on him. She reached out and encouraged him to complete his secondary school education.
James accepted our counsellor's advice and returned to school. He rejoined Project CABIN and took on leadership roles which helped him regain his confidence. His efforts paid off and he graduated two years later. Today, James is working as a manager and is happily married to a fellow schoolmate.
