Lord Puttnam La Salle Visit

Lord Puttnam visits Singapore & Hong Kong

22 March, 2018

Lord Puttnam travelled to Singapore this week and was delighted to spend time with his students and their tutors at La Salle College of Arts. La Salle is home to the Puttnam School of Film and Animation, which offers students qualifications in animation, broadcast media, animation art, and film. Lord Puttnam delivers masterclasses to the students throughout the year, usually by video-link from his home in west Cork, so he was really pleased to be able to teach in person and to have a proper catch-up with his class. His seminars touch upon his own experience in the industry over the past forty years, and also look towards the future – especially during this time of great change across the media landscape.

From there, Lord Puttnam travelled on to Hong Kong to visit the Nord Anglia International School there, and to spend time with its principal Brian Cooklin. Lord Puttnam is Chairman of the School Advisory Board for Nord Anglia, which consists of 55 international schools located in 25 countries around the world. Together, these schools educate more that 50,000 students under one unifying philosphy. There are 37 different nationalities represented at Nord Anglia Hong Kong, and students range from 3 to 16 years old.
