On Tuesday 3rd March, the children of Potton Middle School were treated to a visit of yet another up-and-coming music artist!
Natasha Stewart, a Scottish solo artist going under the moniker ‘ThisisNamaste’, has already toured with Rita Ora and Ella Eyre, and is now embarking on her own exciting solo journey. Soon, she will be supporting Little Mix on their tour later this year as well as releasing her debut album!
Having sang a few cover tracks and some of her own, original music, Natasha took time to discuss the importance of education and working hard at school, why it’s important to think about your future now, and the options that the pupils have after school – reflecting on the decisions that she made and how they benefitted her. She also discussed mental health and well-being, empowering our pupils with confidence to speak about their state of mind, tools to recognise when to reach out and who to talk to.
Speaking to the children after the assembly, so many commented on Natasha’s incredible vocal talent, but equally enjoyed her candid stories and invaluable advice about “speaking up” and looking after your mental health.
On behalf of everyone at school, I would just like to thank Natasha for staying long after to meet the students, write signatures and learn a few Tik-Tok dances too! We wish Natasha the very best for her future endeavours and promise to keep track of her journey to stardom!
