Welcome to RI, Students of the Class of 2022! (updated 28 Jan)

Dear students of the Class of 2022, 

We extend our warmest welcome to you in joining the Raffles family. 

You will be reporting to school on 29 Jan (Friday) at 7.30am. The programme for 29 Jan ends at 2.45pm. 

On 29 Jan, you will be attending the Joint Admissions Exercise (JAE) Induction Programme. Orientation activities will take place from 1 Feb to 4 Feb. More details about Orientation will be shared at the JAE Induction Programme. 

The JAE Induction Programme aims to ease your transition from the Secondary to JC environment. It comprises a series of talks and activities, which covers various aspects of JC student life in Raffles Institution (RI). Information about key school programmes, the GCE A Level curriculum and CCAs will be shared. There will also be opportunities to interact and hear from your seniors about their experiences in RI. Online introductory lectures to various GCE A Level subjects and enrichment programmes, as well as online meetings to find out more about various enrichment programmes have also been arranged for you. 

We would like to draw your attention to the following important information about the JAE Induction Programme and your first day of reporting to school on 29 Jan.
