They have to decide a stream out of - Humanities, Science and Commerce, and the only career guidance she/he has is the opinion of their parents and teacher’s judgment based on marks and comments of their friends and neighbors. It is at this point that a career counselor steps in and helps the child sail through these turbulent times.

School has been always looking for excellent options for its kids and with in short time span it will arrange another workshop for the kids.
