Yialousa high school has been reduced to a flooded, muddy quagmire after rain hit the Karpasia region on Thursday morning.

The school is currently partly housed in portacabins after the main school building was deemed unsafe during inspections carried out following February’s deadly earthquakes in Turkey.

The Cyprus Mail contacted the north’s ‘education minister’ Nazim Cavusoglu, who said he “would not make a statement” on the matter.
