HUNDREDS of star pupils from schools across the East Kilbride area have been rewarded for their perfect attendance record.
A total of 375 youngsters from 15 primaries received medals for not missing a single day of class over the past year.
This equates to 11 per cent of the school population in the wider East Kilbride education area.
The gongs were designed especially for the pupils and were provided by civic pride organisation, Supercounty.
John Scott, head of Supercounty, handed out the medals and was full of praise for the recipients from all of the schools.
He said: "It's both a pleasure and an honour to have this opportunity for the fourth successive year to recognise and reward so many pupils who have achieved such an impressive attendance record.
"I think a special mention is due to the 51 children who are collecting their second award in two years.
"Hopefully, such consistency and application at this young age will instil in these children a sense of self-discipline and pride in their achievement as they mature and move from school into the work-place.”
