This is what Mandy Lau the attendance officer had to say;
“Just wanted to say thank you again for Sam and Ben coming to Rosslyn Park to present the football tickets and bringing another bike! I think your presence has completely motivated them as attendance has improved since Monday!

We at Rosslyn Park would like to say a huge thank you to Aquinas for the contributions you have made towards our schools attendance.

Since your involvement, we have seen a massive boost in overall attendance and year on year our 100% and 99% attenders have increased. We feel that all the incentives you provide the children is definitely a motivator for them to come to school every day!

We are extremely grateful for the generous Jungletastic vouchers, cinema trips, bikes and kindles you have provided us over the years, and more recently the Nottingham Forest box tickets in which the children have been extremely excited about.

Without Aquinas contribution we would not be able to present the children with so many awards and prizes and that means so much to them. It is great to see a local organisation, like Aquinas supporting a local school like Rosslyn Park in thriving to achieve excellent attendance.”

This is what the Aquinas Foundation strives for, we are happy to support Rosslyn school and have done since they were one of the lowest attended schools in the whole of Nottinghamshire and we have helped them turn their attendance scores full circle. Well done to all of the pupils who have changed their attitude towards education and the importance of being in school every single day.
