London, Jul 13: A 17-year-old Bright girl loves going to school so much that she hasn't taken a day off in the past 14 years.
Kirsty McLachlan, who joined Sunderland High School at the age of four, has just completed her A levels with a full attendance record. She has received headteacher's award for excellence. "I don't really know how it happened. It started years ago and I was determined not to miss school. I just kept on going," the Mirror quoted McLachlan from Ashbrooke, as saying. "There have been times when I have felt poorly, but I went to school anyway," she added.
