Most schools in Chimanimani district managed to open for the second term on Tuesday (today).
This follows the early closure of some schools during the first term after Cyclone Idai destroyed infrastructure as well as causing the death of scores of teachers and students.
Ngangu Primary School, the scene of horrendous destruction, opened its gates to returning pupils.
According to ZBC News Online, some parents and students were equally excited that normalcy has been restored and optimism is high that students will catch up with their studies given the time they lost the last term.
Speaking to ZBC News, Chimanimani District Administrator Mr John Misi said:
We have moved our people into provisional shelters so as to clear the holding centres to give way for our students. I can safely confirm that all schools in the district have opened.
Misi also spoke about the need to continue with psycho-social programmes for both students and parents following the tragedies caused by the deadly cyclone.
