The flags were flying, the kids were singing and Mama and Papa were thrilled to bits to be showing students the wonderful new facility constructed since they broke up for the long holiday in October.
And as you couldn't be with us we are bringing the opening ceremony to you.
The suite, gifted by Mark and Amanda Barron, is a huge landmark in the development of the Happy House and will help drive forward the education that is, to our children, the road out of poverty.
This is one of a series of videos featuring the opening day which we will show over consecutive days on our blog.
We hope you will enjoy being a part of our joyful day.
