Lasalle College of the Arts officially opened its second campus on Friday evening in Winstedt Road, off Bukit Timah Road.

Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong was the guest of honour at the ceremony, which was also attended by president of the college Steve Dixon and chairman of the college Peter Seah.

The new 5,000 sq m compound houses studios, workshops and photography labs spread over four blocks, surrounded by greenery and an open space the size of two football fields.

Lasalle took over the compound, which was formerly the Madrasah Al-Irsyad Al-Islamiah secondary school, in June 2013. Students began using the premises two months later, in August.
