"I believe that the happiness and wellbeing of children and teachers is the key to excellent achievement, with every individual feeling understood and valued. It was my aim to unite with a group of likeminded people to create a school that could truly achieve this. At Eupheus we have created a state of the art school, where children can learn in a safe and supportive environment that will allow them to embrace diverse learning strategies and lead them to achieving their own specific educational goals. Eupheus is where friendships will be made and lessons learned that will last a lifetime. Please do come and visit us to see for yourself, you will be given a very warm Eupheus family welcome."
