How One Woman Inspired a Future Educator


Meet Anita Senjic, a devoted educator with a passion for children and mentoring. Since 2010, she has been working with Communities at Work making a difference in the lives of young learners. But there’s one special story that left a lasting impact on Anita’s heart.

In 2017, Anita looked after a young girl named Sophie who had been placed into Gordon Out of School Hours Care (OSHC). It was a tough time for Sophie and her siblings as they were temporarily in the care of their grandparents. Anita took Sophie under her wing, with encouragement and support that left a lasting impact.

Seven years later, destiny brought a heartwarming surprise for Anita. Now working as a Trainer and Assessor, she discovered that Sophie had enrolled in the Communities at Work Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care. Their paths crossed once again, and Anita was determined to make Sophie feel comfortable and respected in her new role.

Sophie remembered the care she received at OSHC and how Anita had looked after her and her siblings during a difficult time. Anita had left a lasting impression, sparking Sophie’s passion for working with children and teaching them new things.

Anita couldn’t be prouder of Sophie’s determination and growth. Although Anita felt like she was just doing her job, this feel-good story reminds us to never underestimate the impact we can have on others. Even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference.
