Popped in to de­liver mes­sage on safety

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

X-FAC­TOR per­form­ers and R&B and pop duo Mis­un­der­stood vis­ited Thorpe House School in Ger­rards Cross on Fri­day (Fe­bru­ary 3).

The duo – known as Stephan and Jef­frey – gave a talk to the se­niors about stay­ing safe on­line, and used a mix­ture of hu­mour, singing, danc­ing and back flips to get their mes­sage across.

Au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion was at a high as the event cul­mi­nated with a dance off be­tween stu­dents as the pop stars talked about their ex­pe­ri­ences on­line and be­ing bul­lied at school.

Sarah Melvin, PR and mar­ket­ing for the school, said: “The boys re­ally en­joyed the ses­sion and per­haps it was be­cause a pop act was giv­ing them cy­ber tips, but they re­ally en­gaged in what was be­ing said.”

Mis­un­der­stood grad­u­ated from The BRIT School of Per­form­ing Arts in Lon­don and have had ap­pear­ances on the X Fac­tor and Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, and have opened for MOBO Award Win­ner Chip­munk and Grammy win­ners Boyz II Men.
