Attending school every day enables your child to get the most from their education and create a bright future.
Research from the Telethon Kids Institute tells us that children who go to school regularly do better at school. This helps them create more opportunities for their future and leads to better health, social and work outcomes.
Every day your child learns something new at school. Every day they build on what they already know, growing their knowledge and skills.
