National Day Celebrations 2014
It was a joyous yet solemn occasion on 8 August 2014 as Raffles Girls School celebrated Singapore’s 49th birthday. The cool morning was infused with laughter and excitement as everyone came together as one, with countless smiles on every face. Donned in our red and white clothing, we overwhelmed the school grounds in a bright sea of red, symbolising universal brotherhood and the equality of man.
45thGB participated in the parade and ceremony segment of the celebration. We were represented by a contingent from Batch 16, led by Sgt Hannah Tan. The day started bright and early for all of us as we were required to report at 6.30am!
Breakfast was distributed to all the uniformed groups. After breakfast and uniform inspection, the school settled down to witness the marching-in parade, executed with precision by the Uniformed Groups, including Girl Guides, Red Cross, NCC, NPCC (Sea) and of course, our very own 45thGB.

We then sang the national anthem with tremendous fervour and conviction. This zeal in everyone was still burning brightly in our hearts as our principal read out the national day message and the Guest of Honour gave her speech.
Afterwards, we proceeded to the concert segment of National Day Celebrations. Our very own graduating Batch 14 took the stage with ‘My Island Home’ for community singing!
I BELIEVEEE (I can fly)
The celebrations ended at 10am to the dismay of many. Nevertheless, it was a wonderful day and everyone left school with huge smiles on their faces.
Batch 16 in all their glory
