X FACTOR contestant Danny Dearden was at Rainford High to give students a musical treat as well as deliver an important message on cyber bullying.
The Rochdale singer, who reached the judges’ house stage of last year’s X Factor with mentor Mel B, sang for pupils in years seven, eight and nine on Tuesday morning.
As well as delivering a 50-minute performance for each year group, Danny gave an important message about online safety and internet bullying, supporting schemes developed by Life Skills Education CIC.
“It’s important for us to educate our students about Cyber-Bullying and Online Safety. I’m hoping that young people will take on board some of the important messages about keeping safe online. In addition, learning to respect each other. It’s an original way of putting across quite a serious message. It was a successful day.”
Miss Wood - Pastoral Support Manager
“Our school ethos of Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps and Everyone Succeeds ensures that the welfare of our students is central to them being able to achieve their full potential. It is vital that we educate them about the importance of staying safe online and the dangers of cyber bullying. As a school it is our responsibility that the young people are well informed about online safety issues, ways of developing mental and physical fitness so that they can contribute to the school and the wider community as positively as possible. The performance today is one way that we can engage our young people with these challenging issues and topics.”
Mr Ian Young - Principal
