Sam being_mobbedFormer X-Factor finalist, Sam Callahan, came to Abbey College to talk to Year 7 and year 8 students about e-safety on Wednesday 18th November.

He spoke passionately about the topic and performed songs that students loved and engaged with. One year 7 student said “He was amazing and I really felt for his story of Chloe, who was cyber-bullied, it has definitely made me think more about what I read and post online”.

Students were courageous in offering their own advice and answering questions. There was also an opportunity for students to meet with Sam at the end of his presentation."
