World-renowned YouTube star Tom Cassell dropped in at St John’s Primary School in Dukinfield to speak to pupils about his career, his journey into video gaming and the importance of getting a good education.

He also spoke about self-belief and being resolute, skills he thinks have helped him over the years.

Tom, who is better known as ‘Syndicate’ and is based in Gee Cross, met with pupils and signed autographs following the lesson led by his former classmate Lydia Hewitt-Lee, who teaches at the school.

Whilst the pupils loved meeting the star, there was a serious message the school wanted to get across.

“Following a parents evening, a lot of the parents raised concerns that they don’t know what’s going on in the ‘online world’, explained Miss Hewitt-Lee.

“So to have someone the kids know and respect come in and tell them about it was just fantastic.

“He did a better job than any of us could do at school because I don’t know the world they playing online very well, so it was fantastic.”
