A Letchworth girl who did not miss a single day of school throughout seven years has received a special attendance award at her end-of-year assembly.
Leah Brookes, 11, achieved a remarkable 100-per-cent attendance rate over 21 terms at Stonehill School, from the start of Reception through the end of Year 6.
Her mum Debbie looked on as she received a commemorative plaque at the Western Close school’s celebration assembly on Friday.
Stonehill head Elaine Close told the Comet: “Leah has been an exemplary student. She has a positive attitude towards her learning and always tries her best in everything that she does.”
Parents Andrew Bunker and Debbie Brookes are very proud of their daughter, saying that she has always been determined not to be absent or late in class, even though she has felt unwell some days with tonsillitis and ear infections.
