A grief-stricken Danwon High School resumes classes for all grades on Monday.
The school has been closed since the tragic ferry accident on April 16th.
Only the senior class was in school last week.
On Monday, the freshmen class and the 13 second-year students who did not go on the ill-fated field trip return to a school that has suffered a devastating loss.
To help students cope with the tragedy, the school offers various kinds of counseling support.
The special programs will be led by dozens of psychotherapists and art therapists.
The 75 second-year students who survived the disaster remain on leave and it has not yet been decided when they will return to their studies.
The decision will be made by doctors and the students' parents, who will also discuss programs for helping them cope with the loss of their classmates.
"It is better for them to be together. One of the common programs in a situation like this is to have a camp for the students."
The parents of the surviving students plan to have their children participate in such a healing program, which will be staffed by therapists, medical doctors and education experts.
