Maesycwmmer girl hasn’t had a day off school in eight years
Young Georgia Marshall is in a class of her own – she’s not had a single day off school for EIGHT years!
And turning up to register at Maesycwmmer Primary School for more than two thirds of her life won the 11-year-old a special end of term award at a special assembly.
Georgia’s mother, who is also a dinner lady at the school, said: “I am so proud of Georgia.”
Cabinet Member Councillor Rhianon Passmore congratulated Georgia and her parents and said: “ Children only get one chance at school, and the chances of a successful future may be affected by not attending school or alternative provision regularly.
“Nowadays, it is more important than ever to have a good education behind you if you want more opportunities in adult life and making good attendance routine in a child’s life will set them up for the future.”
