The National Assembly has welcomed numerous schools from across the country for this month of May. On Wednesday, May 23rd 2018, we had three schools visiting which were: Louisville R. C. School from Corozal, San Narciso R. C. School from Corozal, and Quality School International from Belmopan, and on Thursday, May 24th, 2018, we had the Richard Quin R. C. School from Georgetown.
The presentations were all conducted by either Ms. Eudice Gibson, Senior Clerk Assistant; Ms. Ingrid Soriano, Parliamentary Officer I; and Ms. Mary August, Parliamentary Officer I. The groups were escorted to the galleries in the Chamber were all presentations are held and an educational tour of the building and an informative presentation of the functions of the National Assembly was done for each school.
The students were given a brief description of the historical background of the National Assembly, the composition of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the functions of the legislative branch of government. The students had the privilege of seeing the Mace and were given a brief history of its historical background of the design and the significant role it plays in the sitting of the House of Representatives.
At the end of the presentation all students, parents and teachers were given the opportunity to ask questions which were all answered by the presenters.
