YUSHU, Qinghai, April 17 (Xinhua) -- A school in the quake-hit zone of northwest China's Qinghai Province resumed classes Saturday afternoon in prefab housing, the first school to do so.

More than 60 primary and middle school students sang the national anthem when classes began at 3:00 p.m. at the Yushu School for Orphans in Gyegu Town, in the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yushu.

Classes stopped after a 7.1-magnitude quake struck Yushu early Wednesday, toppling most houses in Gyegu.
