Hello my name is Helen McMahon and I work as an Administration Assistant in the school office.  This is my second year in this role, as before I was Receptionist for many years.  My duties are supporting students, parents and teachers to make their experience at our school as smooth as possible.  I am also involved with supplying sports uniforms for the many varied sports we offer at ANI.

My family has lived in Mt Eden for 30 years and both my children went through the local schools, including ANI.  Our family welcomed Niko in June last year which was a huge high after the ups and downs of COVID, and I am a doting proud Gran.   In the holidays and most weekends I can be found in gorgeous Pauanui, enjoying all that is has to offer, and of course a lot of relaxation with family and friends.

I enjoy running (well try to!) and have entered the Dual Partners 21km run taking place in April this year over at Rangitoto Island.  This involves a lot of pounding the pavement running and luckily living in Mt Eden there are a lot of hills to make it challenging.

Looking forward to meeting a lot of you as the year progresses and remember we’re here to help in the office.
