ST Mary’s Primary School in Myrtleford operated as normal yesterday after fire destroyed two classrooms on Monday.
The school turned one of the assembly rooms into a classroom for grade three and four students.
“We had an assembly followed by a debriefing where students were encouraged to write and draw their feelings,” principal Colleen Wilkin said.
“All the feedback from the parents has been positive in how we handled the situation.”
More than 200 students and staff evacuated the O’Donnell Avenue site on Monday after a teacher noticed smoke seeping from the classroom’s roof.
Fire investigators were on the scene yesterday to determine the cause of the blaze.
