Boys’ Brigade

 

Yearbook-RIBB

 

The Raffles Institution Boys Brigade Programme seeks to develop boys holistically. This is accomplished through badge work which consists of Adventure, First Aid, Community Service, Drill, Piper/Drummer, Christian Education and Leadership to name a few. In addition, there are various opportunities to represent the school in Boys Brigade Blaze, Cluster Drill Competition, Character Quest and Singapore-South East Asia Pipes and Drums Championships. The Y5-6 Boys Brigade Programme is a continuation of the programmes where these young adults play the role of mentors and cadet officers for the younger Boys. The programme will culminate with the prestigious President Award when the boys are in Year 6. If you have what it takes to be an all-rounder, this CCA is the right one for you.

Achievements & Highlights



Internal Band Competition Nov 20
Since COVID safe-distancing measures did not allow for the official Pipes and Drums Festival to take place, the 60th Boys Brigade Company Pipes and Drums Band organised an internal competition. In the weeks leading up to the final competition, one could see the dedication and hard work of the bandsmen as well as the bonding and friendships across the batches. This competition was a memorable one for the Year 3s, as it was their first competition where they got to display their skills. For all bandsmen, it was an opportunity for bonding and rekindling passion for the band.

Boys’ Brigade Cares Nov 20
60th Company partnered with Kampong Kapor Family Service Centre (KKFSC) and reached out to 30 lower income households in Kitchener Road in a one-off hamper delivery drive. The hamper comprised food and stationery items for families with young children and the elderly.
