    Raffles CLDCS (Chinese Literary Drama Cultural Society) is a performing arts CCA. Containing three sections – Chinese drama, songwriting and calligraphy – CLDCS strives to promote Chinese culture and identity within RI through three areas drama, mandarin song-writing, calligraphy, and creative literary script-writing, as well as provide opportunities for our members to showcase their talents.

    Although there are three sections in CLDCS, our members of all sections emerge strongly bonded by having inter-section activities and bonding times, especially after our annual performance held in May every year. The conducive ambience for exchange of ideas on traditional and popular Chinese culture has made our CCA not only stick to the traditional values of Chinese culture but also explore newer values from the younger generation and infuse them into our creation of songs, play scripts and calligraphy works.
