Children need to attend school on a regular basis because it is the key to them doing well at school and sets them up with good habits from an early age through to adulthood.

It also gives children the opportunity to:

  • make lots of friends and feel included;
  • boost social skills, confidence and self-esteem;
  • develop their skills to learn new things;
  • achieve their full potential;
  • improve their career prospects.
