People You Should Know

Year Advisor Year 7 2024 - Ms Nikola Anderson 


I am very excited to be taking on the role of Year 7 Advisor for 2024. I was warmly welcomed this year to Alexandria Park Community School in the role of English/EAL/D teacher. It was clear from the start that this school is focused on supporting students through the different phases of their learning journey, starting with their transition to high school, and I wanted to be part of that journey.

I have been teaching for over 10 years across Sydney in both the Inner West and South-West Sydney and I have been involved in transition programs across these schools. I have learnt that transition is all about relationships. It is the relationships we build between students and teachers, parents and teachers, and within our school community. In the high school at Alex Park, there is a huge team helping students transition to high school. This includes; Head Teacher Year 7, Dan Waterworth; Head Teacher Jenla (Learning Support and EALD), Maeve Thomson; Head Teacher Wellbeing, Trish Betar; Learning and Support Teacher Year 7, Anna Nicholls; Deputy Principals, Steven Marcos and Kylie Biddle; Aboriginal Education Officer, Uncle Hilton; the National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy (NASCA); Principal, Debra Lade and many more. I am just one part of this dedicated team of educators, who are here to support our new Year 7s as they start their high school journey.

I look forward to meeting all of our year 7 students and their families. I might already be a familiar face to some of you, as I’m an Erskineville local and Mum of two young boys. I grew up in Erskineville and I have watched it change over the years and become the inclusive, diverse and community it is today. Alex Park Community School is at the centre of this, including students from Alexandria, Erskineville, Redfern, Waterloo, St Peters, Zetland, Eveleigh and across Sydney. We wish you all the best for the start of your high school journey!
