Students in Fiji are back at school this week, but some have returned to tents instead of classrooms.

The interim government is still rebuilding the schools damaged in the aftermath of Cyclone Evan which hit the nation last month.

The National Disaster Management Office had hoped to complete the repairs before the start of term but have been forced to set up temporary shelters while they're finished.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts
