■ A group of Mil­lars Well Pri­mary School stu­dents cut class for all the right rea­sons on Tues­day when the school de­cided to re­ward its most fre­quent at­ten­dees with an af­ter­noon of fun and games.

The school held its first At­ten­dance Re­wards Day to ac­knowl­edge all stu­dents who had at­tended 95 per cent or more of school days over the whole year.

A to­tal of 115 pre-pri­mary to Year 6 stu­dents, about 40 per cent of the school, made the grade.

They were thrilled to be re­warded with a free icy pole each and 40 min­utes of play­time on the school’s oval while their peers were still in class. Prin­ci­pal Will Davis said the day was a good way for the school to show its ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the sim­ple but im­por­tant act of com­ing to school.

“We really want to show the value we place on at­ten­dance by re­ward­ing the stu­dents who come con­sis­tently,” he said.

“It’s a real priv­i­lege that’s much de­served.”
