At the beginning of March 2011, the school resumed after the two and a half month winter break.

Thankfully the wooden floors have survived and have recently been sanded and re-varnished.

In the aftermath of the mudslide disaster, 78 displaced children who had lost their homes or a parent, were taken in by the school as residential pupils. This has left the school with the need for additional classroom and residential accommodation in addition to the planned expansion of the school.

Of paramount importance is to build a defensive structure to protect the school from future similar mud or rock slide events. A structural engineer from Arup, the architects and engineers of the school, is spending four months at the school working with the construction manager during the summer construction programme.

The landscape of the whole school site needs a lot of work because the resulting ground level is 1-1.5m higher than it used to be in many places.
