Raffles Institution Red Cross (RIRC) is a uniformed group which was established as part of the Singapore Red Cross Youth (RCY) network. As part of RCY, RIRC seeks to cultivate the Red Cross ethos, aiming to nurture blooming cadets into humanitarian leaders. This is done through the teaching of 7 core subjects, assessed and qualified by RCY. The seven subjects are First Aid, Disaster Management, Youth Leadership, Service Learning, Foot Drill, Red Cross Knowledge and Youth Ambassador Blood Programme.

RIRC is not your typical RCY unit. Beyond curriculum, cadets’ soft skills are cultivated through enjoyable team-bonding activities targeted at cadet development, such as inter-platoon games. One such soft skill is their leadership. An added focus is placed on leadership development. In Y1-2, this focus is placed on the leadership of their respective platoons, while in Y3-4, the focus is shifted to leadership of the unit. Cadets are afforded many opportunities to lead teams of various sizes in tasks of various natures.

So if you are looking for an opportunity to develop the skills to serve humanity, join RIRC!
