Raffles Institution

Chinese Cultural Club

    Chinese cultural club—a merit CCA full of passion—comprises dedicated Rafflesians who strive to preserve the history and practices of the rich Chinese culture. This is an important establishment that was founded since pre-world war time.

    We strongly value learning through play—during every session, we experience and experiment with the arts, games, and culture left behind by our ancestors, so that we may pass it on. Our motto, “薪火相传”, encapsulates this idea—to pass down the flame of our heritage, generation after generation. We practise them ourselves every session without fail, from traditional carving stones to learning traditional Chinese painting technique, from playing Diabolo (a Chinese version of the yo-yo), to even a simple game of Chinese Chess. We also value each and every of our members, celebrating their birthdays, and also organising parties.

    Chinese Cultural Club is more than just a CCA. It is a lifestyle, a deep rooted sense of pride.

    Requirements: Speak Mandarin Chinese, and attend CCA frequently. That’s it. No hard Chinese tests, essays, or a perfect Chinese GPA. This is a CCA that respects passion more than academic achievements.
