Raffles Interact


Interact class of 2023


Inaugurated in 1963, Raffles Interact is the oldest Interact Club in Singapore. As a school-based club, we aspire to inculcate a passion for service and volunteerism within school population. Through a wide variety of club events and weekly service, we aim to build strong, lasting bonds with both the people we serve and serve with. As Interactors, we have opportunities to interact with a wide range of social groups including children from low-income families, the elderly, persons with disabilities and those in need beyond the shores of Singapore. Drawing upon the Rotary Club of Singapore’s motto of ‘Service before self’, we have the simple wish of bringing happiness and warmth to the people around us. Ultimately, we hope your service journey will allow you to see that there is much to life beyond yourself, and that we all can bring light to others. What unites our family of Interactors is our love for the community that we hold so dear to our hearts.


Achievements & Highlights


Every year, Raffles Interacts embarks on multiple projects, including key events and service opportunities, to bring about positive change in the community and be of service to our beneficiaries. 

Relay for Life – partnering with Singapore Cancer Society, Raffles Interact organised Singapore’s first youth edition Relay for Life (RFL) to celebrate those who battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease that has taken many lives. 

RI Mentoring Programme – A weekly mentoring programme started in Feb 2023 for Primary 4 students from 5 different schools. Interactors facilitated weekly sessions that equipped participants with skills for self-development and social interactions.

RI Mentoring Programme Day Out – Apart from the weekly mentoring sessions with the 5 Primary Schools assigned to Interact, the CCA developed and organised a Teamwork Workshop for the inaugural batch of Primary 4 students from 10 Primary Schools in April. It was the mentees’ first visit to the Institution, and it was planned to coincide with the Year 1-4 Campus Open House for PSLE students. After a quick tour of the Open House, the mentees participated in a series of structured games and activities to learn about teamwork.



Project unLABLE
Project unLABLE was an event that called upon the youth community in our school to remove the labels placed on persons with disabilities (PWDs) and to recognise that they are just as able to live a fulfilling life. By raising awareness about disabilities both visible and invisible, mental and physical, the project strived to foster a more inclusive community in Singapore. We organised a human library dialogue session for participants to engage in conversations with more than 10 speakers from 7 different charitable organisations, such as SG Enable, Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore) and SPD. By bringing together members of the PWD community and the youth, misconceptions and prejudices towards PWD could be addressed, while fostering a more empathetic understanding among participants.

Relay for Life 
Relay for Life (RFL) was an event that rallied the local community to celebrate those who battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease that has taken many lives. Partnering with the Singapore Cancer Society, Raffles Interact organised Singapore’s first youth edition RFL including a Mini RFL event held in on campus and an online simulation game. Participants in the Mini RFL went for an Amazing Race around the school and learnt about cancer at through different station games and activities. Participants of the online simulation game experienced the challenges faced by a cancer patient and wrote heart-warming messages to cancer patients in Singapore. 

Youth Got Heart 
Youth Got Heart (YGH) is Raffles Interact’s annual outreach event which provides a platform for youths to learn about volunteerism, as well as to provide opportunities for students to give back to the local community in a meaningful way. Back after a 2-year break due to the pandemic, YGH 2022 focused on redefining service and helping youths embark on a journey of self-discovery to find out why they do service and what makes service truly meaningful. YGH 2022 comprised of simulation activities, service opportunities, sharing sessions by community-based organisations and individuals who are actively serving. Through these 3 components, we celebrated and reignited the spirit of volunteerism in our peers and enabled them to redefine, rediscover and restart their service journey.
