Putney High School looks forward to welcoming Jeremy Hunt MP (South West Surrey), former Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport and Secretary of State for Health, as a lunchtime speaker on Thursday 4 March at 2:20pm.
Mr Hunt will be joining students online as part of the Putney Ideas Exchange (PIE) Lunchtime talks programme, speaking on the topic of, “Why Language Learning Matters in the Modern World”.
Putney Ideas Exchange is Putney High School’s platform for speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries, to share their life lessons and experiences with the students. Pupils get the opportunity to understand subjects from unique perspectives, to think about their future careers and to challenge themselves with intellectual debates and new ideas.
We welcome Mr Hunt to Putney and look forward to a wide-ranging discussion on the importance of language learning and its relevance to the UK’s position on the global stage.
