Hi everyone my name is Shane and I am very proud to be working with the very talented and forward-thinking staff and students at ANI. Another reason I love being at ANI is that we implement the dynamic International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme using the Primary Years programme or PYP learning framework.
At school, I enjoy being part of all events and activities on offer and particularly enjoy being part of organising or coaching sports teams such as the ski team. I also facilitate Student Coaching across the school, another passion of mine.
My Whakapapa is from the West of Auckland, where my mother still resides and I am proud to be a Westie. Growing up out west provided me with many life lessons and gave me a love for achieving what I set my mind to and enjoying anything to do with the outdoors. I have grown up playing a variety of sports and activities that have kept me busy such as Rugby League, touch, skiing, surfing, swimming and many more. I love going to the beach and being in the water, which is my happy place. I am looking forward to working with you in the future and spending time with your tamariki during their time at ANI.
