My name is Anastasia Panova and I’m in charge of ANI reception and sickbay. I am delighted to be the first point of contact to the students, parents, staff and school visitors and I’m always happy to help.
I was born in Moscow, Russia where I lived for the most part of my life, studied International Relations in the University and then worked as a cabin crew for the major Russian airline. Coming from a family of aviators I had a privilege to travel around the world since I was a little kid which helped me to broaden my mind, learn a few languages and get to know lots of cultures and people of all backgrounds. My passion for travelling brought me to New Zealand which eventually became my home.
In my free time I love listening to vinyl records, going to live concerts and performances, watching movies and learning about cinematography and film-making, dancing Spanish flamenco, practicing yoga, travelling around the country and of course meeting new people and making new friends! I’m always happy to chat, come and meet me at ANI reception!
