Great Dunmow pupils got to dance on stage with a pop star who is about to head off on tour with JLS.

Singer Hatty Keane, who will be joining the boyband on their ­farewell tour, made an ­appearance at the Helena Romanes School to make the youngsters aware of the dangers of drug abuse.

Working with the charity DARE (drug abuse resistance education), she delivered a drug and life skills educational message on the ‘Inspire The Kids’ tour.

But before her warning she gave the pupils an energetic performance which included a cover of Rita Ora’s RIP.

Year 8 pupils were invited to get up on stage and join in.

Hatty, who has also supported the likes of Pitbull and Olly Murs, said: “The idea of this school tour is to get crazy with the kids during the performance so I have their respect and their attention.

“Then they will listen to what I have to say and the serious message I am bringing.”
