On Tuesday our KS3 winners of ‘Attendance Matters’ 7D2 took part in their breakfast rewards with Mr Smith after successfully achieving the highest weekly attendance for the last week.
During the session pupils discussed the value they have in their education with the forms School Council rep explaining “It’s like Mr Bowley says, if each day is a jigsaw piece we can complete the picture, but only if we have 100%. I want to get really good grades and be a doctor. I need to attend for that.” Another pupil was passionate about the experiences they have had since joining the school “If I didn’t attend I wouldn’t have all of the friends I have now and really enjoy the clubs I do in sport and the chess club.”
The pupils were treated to hot chocolate and pastries as they revelled in their success with their tutor Mr Singh. “I am really proud that in my first term here 7D2 have topped the school in the competition and across the first half term. They have a lot to be pleased about.”
You will of course be aware how important attendance is an it has been a delight to see pupils get on board of the attendance competitions at Etone. We look forward to our next one – Twelve Days of Attendance.
