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”.
Moreover many schools in Kuttanadu area in
Alappuzha district remained closed as a massive cleaning operation was on and however
in Idukki, one of the worst affected places, all the 458 schools reopened. An education
department official said "One school functioned from a nearby church hall.
It was only last evening that many of the schools were cleaned up". Further
in Kozhikode, there were relief camps in 160 schools and all of them are functioning.
