    The 02 Raffles Scout group was founded on 8 February 1922. Back then, it was called the Second Singapore Scout Troop. In 1922, Scouting had not yet caught on in Singapore, but with the founding of 02, Scouting soon became popular among Rafflesians. Another scout troop was later formed, the 32nd Singapore Scout Troop (now known as the 01 Raffles Scout Group), to cope with the large intake of students. 02 is currently the oldest surviving scout troop after the First Singapore Scout Troop disbanded.

    In 1965, Singapore became a Republic. That same year, the Singapore Scout Association saw a significant restructuring of its administration. This resulted in the renaming of the troops. The 2nd Raffles Scout Group thus became the 2102 Raffles Scout Group, with the prefix “21” denoting the Stamford district which the troop was based in and “02” to retain its roots.

    Our strong and supportive alumni include Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, Professor Tommy Koh, Dr Tan Cheng Bok and SSA South Area Resource Commissioner Mr Christopher Ng.
