Outspoken pupils at the joint meeting

It was an interesting meeting as the pupils were so outspoken regarding the topics. After wards they were joined by the youth Organizer who came to encourage the members on how special the joint meeting was as the topics of discussion were affecting the youths in schools.

Due to limited time, the meeting was stopped and a number of pupils wanted the meeting to continue however time couldn’t allow. This was because the meeting did not start in time as the hall was being used for something else.
