"I'm very happy. I'm enjoying with friends. We don't want any disruption in our education," said 13-year-old Hafiz Zaman, a student of Srinagar's Burnhall School. He and his friends hope there will be peace in the Valley now and classes will not get disrupted again.
In the class room, students say they will have to work hard to make up for the huge loss of time. Last year's academic calendar was complete washout. "It's really a joyful day because when students are in the school there is life. Education has suffered a lot and we will do our best to make up for loss," said Fr Sebastian, Principal Burn Hall school Srinagar.
"All this time I missed my studies, the guidance of teachers and my friends," said Saeem, a student of Class 10. "There should be no disturbance in education. We are totally disturbed last year," said another student.
