Students across the country will return to school after Tet except primary school and kindergarten children in Hanoi and two southern provinces, though there too they will do so this month.

The Minister of Education and Training Nguyen Kim Son said authorities in the capital and Binh Duong and Dong Nai provinces would consult parents before setting a date for the reopening.

It has also instructed local authorities to ensure students catch up with their lessons, admitting this could take several years.

Son said schools should identify students' mental issues to provide counseling and psychological support when they return to school.

All middle and high schools across the country will open from Feb 7 or 14.

Before Tet only 14 localities had reopened schools, 19 had online and televised lessons, while the remaining 30 had a mix of both.

Son said all universities and colleges too would have students returning to classes this month.

The nine-day Tet holiday ends this Sunday (Feb 6).
