Deputy Principal / SENCO

Email: [email protected]

Welcome to Berkley. My name is Candace Allan, and I am the Deputy Principal. I am excited to be part of this school community and to share a little bit about myself.

My passion for education began when I started Primary School. My mum was a teacher and she inspired me to pursue a career in education. Since then, I have dedicated my life to teaching and helping students achieve their full potential.

One of my passions in teaching is working with emerging adolescents. I believe that this age group is filled with potential, and it is important to help them develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life.

Another area of focus for me is special needs education. I believe that every student has the right to a quality education, and it is important to provide individualised support to help each student succeed. Over the years, I have worked with students with a wide range of learning needs, and I have found it to be one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.

In addition to my love of teaching, I have a passion for the arts, especially dance and productions. I believe that the arts are an essential part of a well-rounded education. I have danced in a range of different disciplines since I was 5 years old and taught dance as my part time job throughout my studies.

Outside of school, I love spending time with my family. I have three children - two boys and a girl. I am excited to share my skills and knowledge with this school and to help all students achieve their full potential.
