FOR SALE: One Chair Plays Preview

Did you know human trafficking exists in Singapore?

“Huh?” Many people say when asked this question. But it does, and on a scale far larger than what you would expect. More women are enslaved in Asia than anywhere else today, and Singapore – contrary to popular belief – is one of the biggest destinations for trafficking victims today. It’s precisely because of our booming economy and international reputation as a clean and safe place that makes trafficking victims particularly susceptible to falling prey in sunny Singapore.

Why Raffles Palette? A palette symbolises diversity — although each colour may not stand out individually, they can come together to form a painting, which represents unity, inclusiveness and the fact that all colours are equally important. The tapestry that is created by the colours mixing also signifies our vibrant school life.

Choosing the right JC for you can be a difficult task — it may be the gateway to university, but also offers many more opportunities than academia alone. Raffles Palette 2015 will showcase the myriad of choices available for you, our future Rafflesian, be it in terms of sports, the arts, or other talents you may want to develop.

Open House will be held tomorrow, 14th January, from 9am to 3pm. Majority of the activities are concentrated in one area — the Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH), Indoor Sports Hall (ISH), Gryphon Square, Innovation Centre, and the Cage, as seen from the map below. In line with our palette theme, visitors who visit all 5 areas and get their palettes stamped will also receive a special prize.

Upon registration, you’ll be given a goodie bag (with Marble Slab Creamery vouchers!) and our friendly Befrienders will take you on a tour around our campus. Afterwards, you’ll be free to walk around and explore the various areas. Our principal, Mr Chan Poh Meng, will also be giving a talk at 1200 at the PAC. Other highlights include:

  • Different route options: ‘full’ and ‘express’, depending on how long your visit will be
  • Food booths: Domino’s is selling subsidized pizza, as well as other stalls selling tutu kueh, burgers, bubble tea, and more at the canteen
  • A showcase of our house spirit and cheers at the Gryphon Square
  • Performances by performing arts CCAs at the MPH and Gryphon Square, live demonstrations by sports CCAs in the ISH

The programme can be found below, and will also be included in your goodie bag. Alternatively, just approach any Befriender for any information you may need. We hope to see you at Open House!
