Reliable Taylor Walsh has battled colds, flu and even tonsillitis but he has made it into school every day for the last 12 years.

Taylor, 16, is a pupil at Holy Cross Catholic High School and before that was at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Chorley.

The Deputy Head Boy has never had a day off at either school and is proud of his achievement.

“It did become something I really wanted, I wanted to go through school without having a day off for sickness,” said Taylor.

“I had a spot of tonsillitis once but I battled through it and my mum and dad both encouraged me to go to school.

“Some of my friends think it’s impressive, others think it’s a bit sad but I am proud of this record.”

Taylor is currently taking his GCSEs and wants to go onto Blackburn College and study Media Production.

“I already do quite a lot of work with Chorley Little Theatre behind the scenes, setting up shows, working on lighting and so on so I have had quite a lot of work experience.

“The course involves camera work, script writing and making films and I have got a place, dependent on my grades. I want to carry on my 100 per cent record as well!”
