Raffles Institution

Prefectorial Board


    The Raffles Institution Prefectorial Board (RIPB) is the highest student leadership body in Raffles, and aims to improve school life for all Rafflesians. Passionate individuals who are interested in serving the Rafflesian community are put through a rigorous selection process to ensure that they have what it takes to be a prefect. It is only after making it through this process that their two-year Prefectorial journey begins. The RIPB has three main objectives – to uphold and enforce the standards of the school, to preserve the very spirit of Raffles Institution, and to connect the school population through outreach efforts. Through this, the RIPB strives to make the school a better place for all.

    Events and Highlights

    The 93rd Board of 2016–2017 set out with a vision to forge a united Rafflesian community through people-oriented leadership. It aimed to deepen interactions among fellow Rafflesians and widen their roots in the Rafflesian community through robust and extensive outreach efforts. First, the Board created the Match Support (MS) department, which focused solely on coordinating and improving the match support experience for Rafflesians. Also, the Board introduced a feedback system for the school to contribute valuable insights and ideas for improvement after key school-wide events. In a concerted effort to reach out to more Rafflesians and create a greater sense of Rafflesian inclusiveness in the Board’s initiatives, the Board introduced various online social media campaigns, organised numerous events and TGIF activities at the Gryphon’s Lair, through its Team Raffles: Next Generation (TRNG) Facebook and Instagram pages.
