You may need to change the file paths to match your Mac's setup. A more typical path on OS X looks like this

/Users/ronanconroy/Documents/Consult files/Jacent Asiimwe/New attendance data

Note that there's no double-slashes. 

Try using shift-command-J to change to the correct folder and seeing what the file path looks like when Stata echos the command.
