Teacher Aide/Special Project ‘Garden to the Table’ and Lab Teaching Assistant

Kia ora, my name is Bruce Banbury and I assist with ANI students’ lab experiments during their science lessons. My experience with science/technology is primarily in the commercial world where I have used my chemistry background to carve out an interesting career, formulating and selling chemical-based products (in NZ, Australia, UK, Middle East and SEA), running laboratories as well as keeping abreast of environmental considerations and international standards of compliance.

Along the way I enjoyed training commercial lab staff and now thoroughly enjoy helping ANI Year 7 and 8 students with their investigative and creative lab work.

I have a long association with ANI, having had three children enjoy their education while forming long term friendships with fellow students at the school.

Outside of work hours I play guitar, listen to music, attend nearly every Warriors NRL home game and spend time with friends.
