Sami Truscott- Founding Director
When I was in Primary school I was bullied. I was miserable at school and as a result, my grades began to deteriorate. That was until a new teacher started when I was in grade four. She started a music ensemble and I eagerly joined. This completely changed my life. I finally had a place where I truly felt like I belonged and this gave me a new found love of learning. This is what inspired me to start Allegro Education. I truly believe that every child has the capacity to do amazing things if we as educators identify how they learn, and play to their strengths.
