What is the ANZ Olympic Schools Programme?

We have registered with ANZ to join their ANZ Olympic School Program. The school receives a kit of resources and merchandise that will help inspire and motivate our students. If you, family members or friends are looking to take a home loan, or increase your current home loan over $50k, speak with your local ANZ representative. If you draw your home loan with ANZ and identify our school we will receive 800 credits, equal to $400 to spend at the ANZ Awards Centre, on items like sporting equipment and computers. We also have the possibility to have a visit from an ANZ Olympic Ambassador.
