Raffles Institution

Humanities Club



  •  
    The objectives of the RI Humanities Club are to develop an understanding of the Humanities and Current Affairs in Rafflesians, as well as to inculcate a sense of responsibility with respect to environmental issues. 

    The Humanities Club provides many opportunities for its members to interact with other organisations and schools on many platforms. It is our aspiration that through these activities, Rafflesians will be exposed to more aspects of the Humanities, as well as be inspired to champion Mother Earth's cause as environmental leaders and ambassadors.
