The Raffles Swim Team consists of disciplined and courageous Rafflesians willing to give their all to fulfil their full potential in the water. While many students are fast asleep there are many days where swimmers wake up at 4:45am and plunge into the cold waters at 5:30am to squeeze in a training session before school. But we are not done for the day. After a long, tiring day of school, we head back into the pool for yet another training session before heading home to hit the books.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

By Raffles Ultimate

Managing a 1200-strong student population with a team of 60 is no easy task — especially with the additional burden of academics, and for some, a second CCA. In spite of all this, our newly-inaugurated student Councillors strive to overcome these tribulations to bring a little something into the lives of Rafflesians. To get to know our new Councillors better, Raffles Press presents part two of our feature on the 38th Student’s Council, as interviewees Chew Jay Hong (19A13A), Tan Huiying (19S06O), and Fu Xianli (19S03O) share their feelings about Council and the ideals they wish to realise for the student population.
