87 students from International School Brunei, ISB, yesterday morning made a visit to the Department of Councils as part of the school's learning programme. Joining the delegation was Yang Teramat Mulia Pengiran Anak Muneerah Madhul Bolkiah binti His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince.

Upon Yang Teramat Mulia's arrival with the ISB student's delegation, they were welcomed by Yang Dimuliakan Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Jaya Dato Paduka Awang Haji Judin bin Haji Asar, Secretary to the Cabinet Ministers' Council and Clerk to the Legislative Council. The delegation was briefed on the function and role of the department by Dayang Rose Aminah binti Haji Ismail, Deputy Clerk to the Legislative Council.

Yang Teramat Mulia Pengiran Anak Muneerah Madhul Bolkiah and the ISB student's delegation also had the opportunity to hold an education deliberation at the Dewan Majlis Building Mini Hall. The education deliberation entitled 'Which is a better city? Athens or Sparta' aimed to introduce the students and give them experience in presenting Bills during the session. The deliberation was also to build up the students characteristics and enhance their skills in public speaking.

Yang Teramat Mulia and delegation then took a closer look at the Legislative Council Conference Hall. The visit is hoped to give the students a clearer and wider picture on the role of the department.
