Resources for schools


Promotional Tool Kit

Frontline staff are encouraged to engage further with registered schools in their local community. We have developed a tool kit of images which you can provide to schools as part of your conversations with them. These tools help schools encourage their community to take out a home or business loan with ANZ, helping the school earn more credits to spend on new sports and computer equipment. The school can use these images in their school newsletters, websites and social media.

Click here to download the tool kit for your school. Please note, there are terms and conditions included in the tool kit which the school needs to understand and agree to, prior to the use of any images provided.


All schools registered in the ANZ Olympic School Programme will be sent the following:

  • ANZ Olympic sports bag
  • A set of ANZ Olympic School medals (Gold, Silver and Bronze)
  • Olympic Values posters: Joy of Effort, Fair Play, Respect for Others, Pursuit of Excellence and Balance of Body, Mind and Character
  • Certificates of excellence so you can reward and encourage achievement
  • Online access to Olympic Museum including profiles of Olympic athletes and history

The ANZ Olympic Schools Kit will be delivered up to 30 days after confirmation of registration and is dependent on availability of stock.


Letter of encouragement

Schools can request personalised letters of encouragement from an Olympian. These will be written directly to a nominated student and will acknowledge their demonstration of Olympic Values-based behaviour, recognise individual student potential and provide added encouragement to them in their pursuit of excellence, whether academic or sporting.


Educational Resources

A range of New Zealand Olympic Education resources are available to teachers.  These resources are designed for Years 4 - 8 and levels 2 - 5 of the NZ curriculum and bring to life the Olympic values across all subject areas.

Joy of Effort: Young people develop and practice physical, behavioural and intellectual skills by challenging themselves and each other in physical activities, movement, games and sport.

Fair Play: Fair play is a sports concept, but it is applied worldwide today in many different ways. Learning fair play behaviour in sport can lead to the development and reinforcement of fair play behaviour in the community and in life.

Respect for Others: When young people who live in a multicultural world learn to accept and respect diversity and practice personal peaceful behaviour, they promote peace and international understanding.

Pursuit of Excellence: A focus on excellence can help young people to make positive, healthy choices, and strive to become the best that they can be in whatever they do.

Balance Between Body, Mind and Character: Learning takes place in the whole body, not just in the mind, and physical literacy and learning through movement contributes to the development of both moral and intellectual learning. This concept is the foundation for the revival of the Modern Olympic Games.
