Leh, Ladakh, J&K, India, 27 July, 2012 - On this fourth visit to Lamdon Model School since the mid-seventies, His Holiness the Dalai Lama was given a warm reception by Mr. Eshey Tondup, the Principal, who showed him two new buildings: a dental clinic funded by Mr. Bill Kite of the US in memory of his late father Roy A. Kite, Jr. and a science block with three new Chemistry, Physics and Biology laboratories. The three-storey science building was built with grants from the Dalai Lama Trust. During his last visit to Lamdon school, in 2009, His Holiness urged the administration to provide such science facilities so students could gain practical experience of science. He offered financial help for them to do so and was deeply impressed with what has been achieved.
