Temporary classrooms will be set up on the grounds of a Tasmanian school destroyed by bushfire while the school is rebuilt.
The demountable classrooms and facilities will be placed on the Dunalley Primary School's oval, and the gymnasium, which was unscathed, will also be used.
Tasmanian Education Minister Nick McKim said the loss of the school was a massive blow to the Dunalley community.
He said the clean-up of the site had already begun.
"We have also already placed an order for demountable classrooms and facilities so the temporary school can be up and running as soon as possible," he said in a statement on Thursday.
Mr McKim did not specify when the temporary school would be open.
The Tasmanian government has pledged that the school, which has about 130 students enrolled for the 2013 school year which starts on February 5, will be rebuilt.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard visited the school site on Monday.
Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings said the government was doing all it could to ensure the students could begin classes in three-and-a-half weeks' time in their own community.
