Boys’ Brigade




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.

Through a series of challenges and quizzes, the Boys learnt about the story of Joseph and the importance of trusting in the Lord, and put these skills and values to the test through the activities they completed and the decisions they made in the competition, thus clinching the Gold Honour Roll in 2022!
