The new name, written in Tamil!

The opening ceremony is attended by many parents and local NGO representatives.

Shyamika, from Room to Read, cuts the ribbon. Behind is Bob from SHIVA Charity UK.

Edirparippu Nursery School replaces Vignesaveram Pre-school, which was destroyed by the tsunami. The name means "Hope", which is very appropriate for all these children and families that are looking desperately for a new beginning and a new chance in life.

The children get their first feel of the classroom.

Clive Hughes (Treasurer, SHIVA Charity) lights a taper, as part of the traditional blessing.

Children sing a "Thank you" song. We say a big thank you to Simon and Sally-ann in Bristol (UK) for their monthly sponsorship!!
