Some 87 International School Brunei (ISB) students took part in an educational visit to the Legislative Council (LegCo) Building at Jalan Menteri Besar yesterday.
Present to join in the visit was Yang Teramat Mulia Pengiran Anak Muneerah Madhul Bolkiah ibni Duli Yang Teramat Mulia Paduka Seri Pengiran Muda Mahkota Pengiran Muda Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah.
Secretary to the Cabinet Minister’s Council and LegCo Clerk Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Jaya Dato Paduka Haji Judin bin Haji Asar welcomed the young visitors.
The students were briefed on the functions/roles of the department and watched a corporate video, before visiting the LegCo Chamber Hall.
The students also participated in an educational debate at the LegCo Mini Hall, where they acted out the various roles of Parliament and passed their own laws. This builds character and enhances students public speaking skills.
The visit provided them a broader picture of the department and enlightened them further about the annual LegCo meeting.
