    In this paper, we investigate, by means of numerical N-body computations, the orbital evolution of the stellar disc, which we consider to be initially thin. We include the gravitational influence of both the torus and the late-type stars, as well as the self-gravity of the disc. Our results show that, for a significant set of system parameters, the evolution of the disc leads, within the lifetime of the early-type stars, to a configuration compatible with the observations. In particular, the disc naturally reaches a specific – perpendicular – orientation with respect to the torus, which is indeed the configuration observed in the Galactic Centre. We, therefore, suggest that all the early-type stars may have been born within a single gaseous disc.
