Foreword by Mei Feifei (22A13A), Chairperson, Raffles Press ‘ 22
Although we may technically be a school press, we at Raffles Press constantly seek to expand our horizons beyond Raja Block and the Marymount gate to venture into unexplored territory. This is why our journalists have taken full advantage of the easing of community measures to head out into various corners of Singapore over the past few months.
We are proud to present to you TouRIsts — a special edition in which you can find reviews of trails, parks, museums, dining establishments, and everything in between. We hope you will have as much fun reading as we did writing.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the views as we take you on a tour to inspire and perspire!
This is Part 1 of our coverage on Press’ 2022 learning journey. You can access Part 2 here.

“…I’m deaf!” says Hee Ker Ru (22A13B), tilting her head to the right, as she usually does whenever we talk about well… anything. If it wasn’t clear by now, Ker Ru is deaf, though her hearing in her right ear is a lot better than in her left. But to her, this isn’t something that holds her back—it’s just what her reality is like, the only reality she’s ever known.
