On 9 February 2011, the Mayor of Kingston upon Thames held a special event to award medals and certificates to four pupils from local schools for their exceptional attendance records.
All four pupils attended school without missing a single day for more than five years in a row.
Ryan Arnold and Alexander Mackie achieved 100% attendance throughout their secondary school careers, six years in a row. Last year, they were the only two pupils who received the award for their 100% attendance in five years. Both teenagers are currently Year 11 students at Coombe Boys School in New Malden.
A further two pupils, who achieved excellent attendance records at primary school, were also presented with awards.
Henna Dattani, a Year 6 pupil of Green Lane Primary School in Worcester Park achieved a perfect attendance record of not missing any school day for five years. Oscar Tyrrell, currently a Year 7 pupil, was nominated by his former primary school, Grand Avenue Primary School in Surbiton, for not missing a single school day throughout his time at primary school.
At the award ceremony, a Mayor’s Medal and a Mayor’s certificate was presented to each of the four pupils by The Worshipful the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Cllr. Chrissie Hitchcock.
The award ceremony took place in the Mayor’s Parlour, Guildhall, Kingston upon Thames, and was attended by the parents, head teachers, Executive Members for Children and Education and the Director of Children’s Services.
