Following a tradition first established in 2011, RI and the Old Rafflesians’ Association once again invite all Rafflesians to come together for its double anniversary dinner at the West Ballroom of Resorts World Convention Centre. We’ll be celebrating RI’s 195th and the ORA’s 95th Anniversaries! We will also be conferring the 4th Gryphon Award upon a very special Rafflesian, Professor Emeritus Lim Pin.
Take a walk down memory lane at our mini Raffles Archives & Museum in the Foyer before dinner commences. Alums from the Bras Basah and Mount Sinai campuses are invited to add their names to a special community artwork being prepared for the school’s bicentennial and the ORA’s centennial in 2023 by alumnus Yuen Kum Cheong (RI’85, RJC'87), titled 'We Were Here/Here We Are'. During the dinner, a mix of student and alumni groups will headline the evening’s entertainment. Look out for our limited edition Homecoming memento - a pair of Japanese ceramic tea cups adorned with the school colours.
We’ll also be taking this opportunity to fundraise. Proceeds raised through the dinner will be directed to the Raffles Scholarship Series. Each scholarship provides out-of-pocket allowance for needy students whose family's per capita income is below $1,000.
The evening will be a great occasion to underscore your commitment to RI for the work that the school does in helping students flourish into their best selves, while also catching up with your old schoolmates.
