Our staff are lovely people and are always striving to be better teachers. We work hard and play harder.

We use four simple ideas from the Fish Philosophy
 
Be There
Be emotionally present for people. It’s a powerful message of respect that improves communication and strengthens relationships.
 
Tap into your natural way of being creative, enthusiastic, and having fun. Play is the spirit that drives the curious mind, as in “Let’s play with that idea!” You can bring this mindset to everything you do.
 
Find simple ways to serve or delight people in a meaningful, memorable way. It’s about contributing to someone else’s life—not because you want something, but because that’s the person you want to be.
 
Take responsibility for how you respond to what life throws at you. Your choice affects others. Ask yourself: “Is my attitude helping my team? Is it helping me to be the person I want to be?”
