Students rewarded for good attendance
■ 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.”
