Serious damage to infrastructure was sustained through a fire that broke out at the Vuci Methodist School on Friday.
School Manager Sarojni Prasad says 12 computers were destroyed in the fire.
Prasad says the equipment in their Computer room was fully funded by the Education Ministry in 2017.
The School Manager says hopes are high that all the damaged equipment is replaced as soon as possible so classes can return to normalcy.
“We had again contributions from the grant and then we start with another building with a library, computer room, and one classroom. That was opened by Dr. Mahendra Reddy in 2017. The cost of the building with three classrooms was $90,000 with labor cost.”
Education Minister, Rosy Akbar has confirmed the Ministry will be providing computers for the school when the new classroom space is made available.
Meanwhile, all other classes will operate as normal while Year seven will resume classes tomorrow and Year three and five will resume classes on Wednesday.
All teachers have been advised by the Ministry to report to school today to assist with the setting up of the temporary classroom arrangements.
