A musician from Devon has visited pupils at King Edward VI Grammar in Louth to send out a strong message about cyber-bullying, expressing the issue through his music.
Rich Cottell, visited pupils at the grammar school in Louth last week and has been busy touring round a number of schools from all across the country.
He discussed the important issue of cyber-bullying with pupils and his unique message is channelled through his music.
Cyber and physical bullying are both areas that Rich feels very strongly about, so this message, coupled with his music, genuinely seems to have quite an impact on the students he meets.
Rich used to teach music to pupils in schools all over Devon and has since began his school tours.
But Rich has also supported some major artists during his music career including The Wanted and Conor Maynard.
A number of students at the Grammar School praised Rich’s technique, with a huge number of them giving nothing but support and positive feedback.
One student said: “Rich is really good at singing and he made you listen and be aware of cyber-bullying without it being boring.”
Another student added: “The performance was very inspiring. Your singing is beautiful and definitely gave me more confidence so thank you.
“You’ve shown me I can achieve a lot if I can dream it, while helping a lot of people. It only takes words to help. You’re my inspiration Rich.”
“It was a great way to get a message across,” said another.
