The 25th Annual Parade kick-started with a flourish. 57 Boys and 33 Primers proudly marched onto the parade grounds to a spectacular performance by the Pipes and Drums band of the Raffles Institution Boys’ Brigade (60th Singapore Company). This year, as RIBB celebrates its 25th Anniversary, we witnessed an incredible display of our achievements, along with the promotion of a record-number of 17 Year 1 students to the rank of Lance Corporal, as well as the handover of leadership from the Batch of 2016 to the Batch of
2017. The Parade was followed by a Dinner, which showcased our journey as a Company through these 25 years. The event reunited the entire Company, past and present, bringing alumni and pioneer teachers-in-charge since 1991 together to witness and celebrate the growth of their Company.

have any personal ambitions, only ambitions for the school,
you sensed that everything he wanted was rooted in the
betterment of the school, never himself.’
– Mr Magendiran, Senior Deputy Principal, Student Development.
