The two new toilet and shower facilities of the boarding school for girls were officially handed over to the school on Friday, the 3rd of February. District commissioner Mary Sakala was present at the ceremony. Afterwards, there were speeches in the assembly hall of the school and the traditional dance group and the choir of the school gave a performance as well.
