Basic schools across the nation re-opened on Tuesday after a relatively long vacation.
Some schools had proceeded on vacation for the December 7 elections while others went on break during the period but returned to break proper for the Christmas festivities.
On Monday, most pupils were seen tidying up their classrooms in time for re-open.
Most of them were in classrooms on Tuesday for the start of the second term of the 2016/2017 academic year.
Senior high schools were scheduled to reopen January 5.
However, most of them have scheduled to reopen on January 15 just like most tertiary institutions.
