Pupils at Puncheston Community Primary School have been rewarded for their excellent attendance with Folly Farm tickets, thanks to Pembrokeshire business Thomas Carroll.

Wales and British Lions rugby legend, Rob Jones MBE, regional director at Thomas Carroll, recently visited Puncheston, with colleague, Brian Hawkins to present the tickets to the winning classes.

"The Folly Farm tickets have been presented to the Dosbarth Melyn, years 3 and 4, as this is the class that has achieved the highest attendance this year to date," said head teacher Amanda Lawrence.

"Our link governor for attendance, Mrs. Alison Evans, meets with members of the School Council who oversee attendance, and our administrative assistant, Mrs. Emma Beynon, on a monthly basis to record and monitor each class' attendance.

"Last year the school achieved an average of 96.8 percent attendance, which puts it up among the highest in Wales.

"This year we have a target of 97 percent. The tickets provide a fun incentive for the children and everyone in Ysgol Casmael is excited to be involved."

Regional director of the insurance, financial planning and health and safety business, Rob Jones added;

"Folly Farm always provides a fun-filled day out for the whole family so we felt it was the perfect incentive to offer the classes looking to improve attendance at the primary school.

"It is great to work alongside other businesses in the area, contributing to community projects that are on our doorstep.

"We received a brilliant, warm welcome from the school and wish everyone who goes to Folly Farm a great day out."
