Sam from the X factor
X Factor finalist visits Hinchingbrooke Sixth Form
On December 18th, the last day of the Christmas term, we had Sam Callahan, an X factor finalist in 2013 (he came seventh), come and talk to Year 12 about cyberbullying and internet safety. Sam had been in the media prominently the previous weekend regarding conflict and bullying in the X Factor House he had experienced, and so he was able to engage deeply and empathetically with the issue many teenagers frequently experience of pain caused by the difficulty of communicating online. Sam did sing a couple of songs as well, which we all enjoyed, but on this occasion he spoke (at least) as well as he sang.
