We are sad to report that the principal of Nurbuling school as well as two small children at the school have lost their lives as a result of the earthquake. Several other children were injured. We also confirmed that the Nurbuling school had sustained some damage including a collapsed kitchen and damaged office buildings. Our local contact, Chiring Lama, at the Nurbuling school and his mother who was living in the region are both doing fine.
Also, the school in west Nepal (Phalawas) has sustained some damage says the principal of Phalawas school, but the students and staff are doing fine.
