Executives: What Have They Been Up To? Part Two

After a very busy term, the Sabbatical Officers are excited to give you the lowdown on everything that has happened at this term's Executives!

Over the past few weeks, school reps, Collective convenors and Student Group members met with your VPs to discuss the projects that have been happening in the last few months and feeding into the direction of new streams of work.

Previously we updated you on what was to come from the second round Executives of the year, and now the Officers tell you all they've been up to so far!
