Sanders School

School pupils enjoyed an educational lesson with a musical twist yesterday when a TV talent show contestant visited to present a workshop on cyber bullying and online safety.

Yinka Williams, who has appeared on ITV’s The Voice and X Factor also sang songs for teenagers at Sanders School, Suttons Lane, Hornchurch.

Organised by The Prime Agency, Yinka provided information to help pupils make the right decisions about staying safe online.

Year 8 teacher Emma Bruns said: “Live performances such as these really engage the students so that when the messages are delivered, students are really involved.

“As many artists are seen as role models to young people, they deliver these messages in such a way that it empowers and informs students to make the right choices.

“Both year groups really enjoyed the performance and the presentation which was very interactive and got them involved”.
