New Staff at St Albans Secondary College


Andy Nguyen

Hi, my name is Andy, and I am thrilled to join the faculty at St Albans Secondary College. Having completed my Bachelor of Science at Melbourne University, I am eager to bring my passion for science and mathematics into the classroom.

It’s a special moment for me to return to St Albans Secondary College as a former student. My time here left a lasting impression on me, and I am excited to contribute to the school community that shaped me.

Outside of teaching, I enjoy immersing myself in music, whether it’s listening to various genres or strumming my guitar. Additionally, I love to be active through exercise in my off time.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with you all!




Yumiko Kawada

Hi my name is Yumi.  I feel very lucky to be working at St Albans SC as a Japanese Language Assistant on Tuesday and Thursday.  I have worked as an education support for 10 years and had tutored Japanese to business clients previously. 

I enjoy spending time with friends and family.  I like walking with my two big dogs.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with you all.





                              Ranjili Mudaliar

My name is Ranjili Mudaliar, and I am thrilled to join St Albans Secondary school as a Humanities teacher. Having taught in New Zealand for a number of years, I am now excited to share my passion for teaching at St Albans.

Outside of school, I enjoy traveling, cooking, reading and spending quality time with my family.

I am looking forward meeting to working with you all.






Lela Seely

Talofa Lava, Kia Ora, and Hello! My name is Lela and I am very excited to be part of the new English teaching staff at St. Albans Secondary College. I am proud to be of mixed Canadian European and Samoan heritage and have spent the last 4 years of my career teaching abroad. I have grown up in both Canada and Aotearoa New Zealand where I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Alberta, then taught for the past 3.5 years in Ōtara, Auckland. The opportunity to teach here in Australia came up and I thought, why not? Let’s give it a go!

My aim in schools is to support students to the best of my ability with a special emphasis on Pasifika/Māori enrichment. I believe that the values of culture, respect, and service plays an important role in who I am as a teacher and how this is reflected in my classes. 

My not-so-secret talents include being a professional dancer; specializing in hip hop, heels, and commercial styles. I’m a lover of old and new school hip hop/rnb, wearing big earrings, and am obsessed with my giant rottweiler named Rocky. 

O le tele o sulu e maua ai figota, e mama se avega pe a ta amo fa’atasi
