    The Hair for Hope Satellite event organised by Raffles Community Advocates was held on 12 May. Hair for Hope is the only head-shaving event in Singapore that raises funds and awareness of childhood cancer, and all donations help support critical programmes and services for the Children Cancer Foundation’s beneficiaries.

    A total of 158 students (including five female students) signed up to shave this year. The shavees also included members of our staff community as well as five of our students' family members, one of whom is an 81-year-old grandfather! The guest of honour was our principal, Mr Chan Poh Meng.

    The RI Hair For Hope Satellite Event 2016 raised an amount of $55, 257.42 for the Children Cancer Foundation (as of 13 July 2016).
