Taking happiness seriously
We provide an education for children and parents who want to live a life where happiness is the overriding goal. Therefore happiness forms the foundation of the experiences that we offer.
Paying more attention to happiness should be a component of our efforts to achieve both human and sustainable development.
Helen Clark, Head of the United Nations Development Program
We attain a state of mind that can be considered happiness once we ally personal achievement to the learning of things performed together – my achievement is the achievement with others.
José Pacheco, Dicionário de Valores
