Dylan picks up a special award for his perfect attendance at primary school
Not one day off through sickness
A Halfway lad has scooped a special award after making it through primary school without taking any sick days.
Dylan Smith ( 11) attended St Cadoc’s Primary School, and will be going on to Trinity High after the summer holidays.
And Dylan was given a special achievement award by the school after recording 100 per cent attendance throughout primaries one to seven.
Mum Julie ( 44), who works in Rutherglen Library, attributes his impressive record to a passion for learning as well as a healthy lifestyle.
She said: “He loves learning and does very well in school.
“He’s also very active, he plays football for Hampden Boy’s Club and goes running quite a lot.
“He’s also a very healthy eater, he’s right in to his fruit, veg and pasta.
“He’s had a perfect attendance certificate through every year at primary school.”
However Dylan’s knack for impressive attendance seems to run in the family.
Dylan will be joining sister Rebekka (13) at Trinity High. She has had perfect attendance at high school so far and only had two days off in primary two when attending St Cadoc’s Primary.
And brother Kyran (8) had perfect attendance in primary two.
Julie added: “I’m lucky that I’ve got healthy kids. If they were sick I would keep them off school, but they hardly ever get ill, and Dylan has never been sick!
“He’ll be aiming for perfect attendance at Trinity as well.”
