The new toilets are also located nearer to the hostels, which students say is convenient for them. The office also distributed school uniforms and sanitary napkins to the students

“We are thankful to them for constructing new toilets for us. It will benefit us immensely. It was difficult to use old toilets especially at night,” Nim Dem, a student, said.

 “We are happy to get new toilets today. It is a gift from STCBL. The old toilets are a little far and it is difficult to go to the toilet at night. We are also grateful to STCBL for buying us school dresses and mattresses, ” Tshering Wangchuk, another student, said.
