School report – much improvement in Rongtong

 

If you followed our 2015 Thunder Dragon Rally Blog (click here) you may recall that on Day Six, the eve of the rally start in Siliguri, we visited a tiny school in nearby Rongtong (above) where 20 children were taught in Spartan premises alongside the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. In addition to donating a stationery set to each pupil and a stove to provide them with hot food, we made a contribution towards the upkeep of the school. We are therefore delighted to have received an update from Vivek Baid, owner of the Cindrella Hotel in Siliguri, where the rally was so warmly welcomed. 

 
He writes: “We have used the funds donated by the rally participants and The Cindrella Hotel to repair the flooring, paint the building and write educational messages on the classrooms walls. The teachers and students are thankful to you for bringing the rally participants to their little school.”
 

Vivek included a couple of photographs of the newly painted walls (below). We are very pleased that our donations are being been put to good use, and send our very best wishes to everyone at the school, now and in future. You are often in our thoughts!
