We love you Mama Sue

Mama's birthday was just the best reason to party.
Everyone in the family loves our Mama Sue so they wanted to make it a very special day indeed.
Mama and Papa arrived to a musical welcome with the kids singing in full voice.
The children planned every detail of the morning including the programme of entertainment and games.

Their was a catwalk show, musical chairs, a dancing competition, along with apple bobbing,a magic show and acrobatics.
Form 1 students prepared a surprise dance routine which involved getting Mama, Papa, Uncle Billy and Auntie Rose up on the floor to join in.
To finish off there as a tug-of-war contest. Home staff took on and beat school staff; Secondary kids won their pull against Primary kids,  and to much excitement  a girls team beat the  the boys,
Afterwards their was lunch of pizza, ice lollies and, of course, birthday cake.
It was a wonderful party, full of love and laughter, for a wonderful Mama.


We have set up a savings account to help our first intake of secondary school students, all from abject poverty, through university when they leave our Happy House School in 2019.
The scholarship kids have dreams of changing their world by becoming doctors, lawyers, engineers, social workers etc.
