Today our Year 7, 8 and 9 students attended PSHE sessions with R&B/pop artist Jean-Mikhael.
Having signed a £500,000 record deal last year his first single “The Deal” went straight to number 8 on the iTunes/Spotify chart.
Jean-Mikhael performed and, together with his Manager, Kemal, spoke to students about the importance of saying “no”. With examples of how people can be bullied into staying quiet or carrying out actions they really don’t want to do students were encouraged to talk to parents, teachers, counsellors or external organisations such as Off the Record and Kooth.
The session ended with Jean-Mihkael performing a couple more songs as students danced in front of their seats, he then took the time to sign autographs and have his photograph taken.
It was a wonderfully positive session that our students will remember.
