the rules and regulations of the AU School Club. The executive members were also given the opportunity to understand the role of the advisory board and Africa Unite.
This session followed the
last meeting which was held on the 15th of August between Africa Unite and the advisory board of each of the three schools. The schools advisory board is composed of the matron, patron and a member from community where the school is located .
During the session the learners had the chance to ask questions of clarity and interact with executive members from other schools. One of the major highlights of the day was the allocation
of the portfolio committees as follows-
- Minister of Finance
- Minister of Information and Public relations
- Minister of Sports, Culture and Entertainment
