Ten students from schools across the city have been honoured for their 100% attendance record at school at an awards ceremony on 28 June at the Council House.
The ten students were Tillie Eillott, Rosa Kazaz and Jordan Whitehead from President Kennedy, Jennifer Nghiem and Maya Patel from Caludon Castle, Daniel Deakin, Callum Shaw, Dhruv Mistry and Mason Gillespie from West Coventry Academy and Jack Scanlon from Cardinal Wiseman.
The students attended the event with their parents, carers and representatives of their schools in the Lord Mayor’s Hospitality Suite. They were each presented with a certificate and a gift card by the Lord Mayor, Councillor John Blundell.
He said, “Well done to all of you. This is a fantastic achievement and it shows your hard work and dedication to learning. I’m very proud of you all.
“I’d also like to congratulate your teachers, parents and carers, who have also played such a big role in supporting you throughout your education.”
The event has been running since 1996 and continues to recognise those who have been to school every day through a whole phase of education, be it six years in primary school or five years in secondary school.
Councillor Maton, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “The commitment shown by this students is truly inspiring. We all know how important education is for young people, but it’s wonderful to see young people showing dedication to their own education.”
