During the event, Class XII girls—Pavitra Mainali, Lanchyo Lepcha, Prena Rai, Anisha Lepcha, and Ashmita Adhikari—demonstrated awareness about the menstrual process in women's lives and emphasized the importance of maintaining hygiene and safety during periods. The students delivered clear and strong educational messages aimed at ending the taboo and stigma surrounding menstruation.

In addition, students conducted a quiz on menstrual hygiene, which saw active participation from both students and teachers, further engaging the audience and enhancing their understanding of the topic.

After the program, the school Principal, 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐡𝐥𝐚𝐝 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐦𝐚, highlighted the significance of observing Menstrual Hygiene Day. He stressed that awareness is the primary educational medium through which society and the nation can be transformed. Principal Sharma also highlighted that if proper measures are not followed during menstruation, women could face health issues and potentially spread germs. He suggested some environment and health-friendly products available in the market, such as reusable cloth pads and menstrual cups, which are better alternatives to chemical or plastic products. Additionally, he applauded the students for vibrantly organizing the event.

The entire school fraternity, including teaching and non-teaching staff, extended their appreciation to the organizers for conducting such an enlightening and enriching program.

The event was a significant step towards raising awareness and promoting menstrual hygiene, thereby contributing to the broader goal of societal progress and gender equality.
