LAUNCH OF LOVE MOVEMENT INITIATIVE BY XIN YUAN COMMUNITY CARE

Our long-time community partner in Toa Payoh, Xin Yuan Community Care, launched their ‘Love Movement Initiative’ on 20 March. The event was graced by Dato Seri Utama Dr Philip Soon (DBA), who shared with guests his life experiences and philosophy towards volunteerism. Xin Yuan Community Care also presented various partners with a plaque to commemorate the partnership. Our Art Club brought cheer to the event by emceeing the session and facilitating an art workshop for the elderly. 

We are happy that the event was a success and honoured to be a part of Xin Yuan Community Care’s Love Movement Initiative. We look forward to deepening our roots in Braddell-Toa Payoh with our community partners!

LEARNING JOURNEYS WEEK 2021

WhatsApp Image 2021-03-12 at 11.25.27.jpeg
It has been an exciting and fulfilling week for our students who embarked on Learning Journeys (LJ) Week from 8-12 March! Some of the activities they participated in include house-cleaning for the elderly and interacting with them as part of service learning (Year 1s), visiting local farms and places of worship as part of the Regional Immersion & Community Exploration Programme (Year 2s), touring Gardens by the Bay to understand the importance of sustainability for Singapore (Year 3s), and going on a journey to uncover Kallang's development and progress since independence (Year 4s).

LJ Week is an important component of RGS' Character & Citizenship Education programme. It provides out-of-classroom and hands-on experiential learning opportunities for developing our students' civic beliefs, their ties to localities through an awareness of the nation's past, present and future, as well as their capacity for social and community action. Through engagement with local stakeholders, the various activities planned aim to deepen our students' awareness and sensitivity to other social-cultural contexts, and link their experiences with theory by enhancing the application of classroom-based concepts.

HUSH-STEM Week 2021

As part of HUSH-STEM Week 2021, the Indoor Farm Learning Journey was held in RGS' very own Food Lab! Conducted by Mr Darren Ho, a modern-day agriculturalist from his own company, Petalicious Farm, our students were excited to learn more of how Singapore aspires to achieve her own food sustainability in the future. In fact, our students all had the chance to be farmers as they got to take home a personal micro green growing kit.

HUSH-STEM Week is an annual event jointly organised by the RGS Science and Humanities departments. This year, it took place from 16-23 February. Through the series of activities that our students took part in during the week, we hope that they come to understand the importance of STEM for Humanity, and more specifically, how the issue of food security and food sustainability is a shared endeavour for survival in Singapore and around the world.

Lunar New Year Goodie Bag Initiative

In collaboration with Xin Yuan Community Care Centre, the RGS Languages Department spearheaded a school-wide Lunar New Year Goodie Bag Initiative. Students and staff, working within their classes and departments respectively, purchased essential items and festive goodies, designed festive greeting cards, and packed them into goodie bags for 75 low-income families around the Braddell-Toa Payoh community in hopes of spreading some joy to the families this festive period.

A big thanks to our DSA-Community Youth Leadership students who provided the extra support by helping to ensure that the goodie bags are in order, and to some of our teachers and staff who offered to ferry the goodie bags over to the centre.

Year 1 Orientation Week 2021

A warm Rafflesian welcome to the newest members of our RGS family! ⁣ 

From 4-7 January 2021, our Year 1s participated in a four-day orientation programme organised by their seniors from the various Lead Boards, who themselves had the onerous task of re-designing the activities in view of safe management measures, while still keeping them fun and meaningful.

Some of the activities they participated in include a campus tour, Spirit Ignition sessions where they learnt the songs and cheers that generations of RGS girls have given voice to, CCA orientation and the iconic Batch Initiation ceremony where the Year 1s are presented their school badges to pin on their pinafore for the very first time, as they are formally inducted as RGS students.
