2015 Raffles Institution Humanities Challenge
Raffles Institution Humanities Challenge Our school has recently participated in the 2nd Raffles Institution Humanities Challenge. This challenge quizzes participants on their knowledge of topics from Geography, History, Literature, and Current Affairs. The theme “Link: Through Time and Space” aptly encompasses study of the Humanities which embodies the relationships and interactions among men, society and nature. The competition began with a preliminary stage, from which 4 teams would move on to the finals.
One of the two teams that were sent in made it to the final round, which comprised of a presentation segment and a quiz component. Our boys performed well and one of the teams clinched the second position. Through this competition, the boys developed a greater appreciation for the Humanities, had the chance to pit their knowledge on various subjects against the elites of other schools and also developed better teamwork skills.
