The secondary and higher secondary schools in Kashmir re-opened on Monday after a three-month long winter vacation, the state education department said.
The schools were closed since 1 December last year, 15 days earlier than the schedule time, due to intense cold wave conditions in the region.
"The students of class 9, 10, 11 and 12 (secondary and higher secondary) today resumed class work as the winter vacation for these classes came to end yesterday," an official of the education department had said.
The primary schools will open on 5 March, he had said.
