Raffles Press

Raffles Press strives to be the heartbeat of the student body, capturing school events, identity and spirit. We cover stories about people and happenings on campus, often through profiles of students and staff, or through our commentaries on issues that matter to the student body.

Alongside this journalistic content, we also provide useful information for students – current and incoming – to make better, more informed choices in Raffles. From Monday Elective Programme (MEP) and CCA previews, to commentaries on our JC curriculum and syllabus, we remember and understand that the fundamental purpose of a press is to inform and educate.
