19 January 2012 / STRONG MESSAGE FROM POPULAR BOY BAND
After getting all the girls to their feet with a rousing set of songs that included their new track Groundhog Day, Karl, Luke and Chris took their microphones into the audience to talk about the damaging effects of drink, drugs and smoking - backing up their powerful message with anecdotes and images of stars like Daniella Westbrook who lost part of her nose through cocaine addiction and tragic Amy Winehouse.
The event was organised by Truro High's Librarian and Head of PHSE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) Vicki Rendall.
"Getting Eli Prime here was a great opportunity to deliver a very powerful lesson in a fun, engaging way," she said. "All our Year 7 to Sixth Form pupils were able to attend and there was a lot of dancing and autograph signing. I think I can safely say the teachers enjoyed it too!"
