While we were all swept up into the fast-paced routines of JC life, the days of April trickled away gradually, and now, April has almost come to an end. But not to worry, that can only mean one thing: the arts season is upon us.

This is a time when RI’s diverse array of co-curricular activities (CCAs), mainly those in the Performing Arts and Clubs category, hold performances, showcases and events for their peers and the general public. Such events allow members of said CCAs to display the fruits of their labour over the course of their time in the CCA, culminating in rewarding and enjoyable experiences for all involved.

In 2018, Raffles Press brings you a new column that collates all major upcoming CCA events for easy reference and better publicity. Events are organised by date, and this list is accurate as of 26/4/2018, though it may be subject to updates. Events that are conducted by student groups outside CCA may also be included.

Ecoweek 2018: A Preview

By Clarine See (18S03G)
