Min BTB/3/08: Communication from the Chair
Welcoming members to the meeting, the chairman reminded those present that they were interim executives subject to the general assembly’s resolution.
He emphasised the need for visional thinking / for the school’s development and vigilance as they are the engine of the Trust’s activities. His hope was that Buheesi S.S. would become a Model Rural Secondary School.
There was no formal agenda as the main issue for discussion, as previously agreed, was reactions / comments on the Draft Trust Deed.
Min. BTB/4/08. Brief by the Secretary
The secretary reported that the minutes of the previous meeting were not available as the one who recorded the proceedings was not at the station. He however promised to have them ready the following day.
He also informed members that the Trust’s inaugural meeting, at which the Deed is also supposed to be approved, would be held on Sunday 17th February, 2008 at the Ruwenzori View Hotel, NOT on 18th February, 2008 at the school. He was asked to ensure that all members were advised of that change.
Min. BTB/5/08: Comments on the Deed
Chapter 1 Section 111: The special benefits mentioned could mean facilities for the physically/mentally handicapped, students’ fees for orphans, inter school and exchange visits by students and teachers.
Chapter 2 Section A to be rephrased thus, as from the commencement date, the trustees shall hold the capital and income of the trust fund upon the following irrevocable charitable trust known as Buheesi Secondary School Trust and wish to declare a sum of Shs. 10,000 (Ten thousand) donated by each trustee.
All other provisions of this Trust deed appeared satisfactory. The secretary was asked to avail copies of the Deed to potential donors before the 17th February, 2008 General Meeting which all members agreed to attend.
