A Laois student has received a special award for never missing a single day of primary or secondary school.

Many students across Laois receive awards for their commitment to attendance each year however James Griffin from Mountmellick has gone above and beyond.

James never missed a day of primary school in Clonaghadoo National School or during his time at Mountmellick Community School.

The young Laois student was presented with a special award by Principal Larry Curtin at the recent school awards night.

Jame’s uncle, Donie O’Mahony, shared a clip of the award announcement on Twitter. The video was taken by James’ mother, Geraldine.

Well done to James on such a fantastic and unique achievement!
