Students at a Lowestoft high school heard music with a message during a visit from X Factor star Sam Callahan.

The 21-year-old pop star played a special set to pupils before the half term break, as well as talking to the students about internet safety and how to deal with bullying.

Kevin Blakey, principal, said: “Sam was very well received and put across several important messages, all delivered to the pupils in his unique style.

“He also played a number of songs for the pupils who were very excited and spoke afterwards about enjoying the sessions and listening carefully to the point he was making.

“We take internet safety and tackling bullying incredibly seriously at East Point Academy, and this was a fun way of reinforcing those messages.”
