According to sources most school across Kerala reopened on Wednesday after a 10 day Onam break which coincided with the worst floods in a century that ravaged the state, turning many schools into refugee centres. Meanwhile hundreds of school students, many of whom were languishing in relief camps until the other day, returned to their classes for an emotional reunion with fellow students and teachers and in some cases to damaged school buildings.



Furthermore since August 9, Kerala witnessed unprecedented floods that left 1.4 million in over 3,000 relief camps, most of which were schools. Meanwhile the Education Minister C. Raveendranath, a former college professor, told the media on Wednesday that the floods had affected 650 schools and barring 211, all others had reopened. The Minister said "Today there will be no classes. Instead it will be more of an emotional counseling as a good number of these young minds have suffered on account of the rains and floods”.
