FISH Philosophy

During the week, we had a class discussion about this video:

The Fish Philosophy started in a market place in Boston. It is used as guidelines to do whatever work you have to do but in a better mind frame. There are 4 guiding values of the Fish Philosophy. They are;

  • Choose Your Attitude
  • Be There
  • Play
  • Make Their Day

We discussed what we thought each of these values mean and how we can apply them at school.

Choose Your Attitude means that your mood is a choice and however you approach something can make it better or worse. Be There means to participate – you have to go to school so you may as well join in with what’s happening. Play means to have a little fun while doing your job. Make Their Day means to make other people feel special while you go about your business because it will make you feel good too.

We completed some pages in our Inquiry books identifying each value and a small explanation of what they each mean.
