Inna is well known to the house staff in school. She doesn't just visit for the obvious meetings but regularly checks on her girls/boys to ensure their needs are being met. She provides another layer of support for the students. With some companies guardianship can appear to be procedural, we never think this of Bright World. It is obvious that from the leadership downwards employees enjoy their work and care about the students. We have the impression of a caring and joyous organisation.
