Our programmes and resources
Our primary programme supports schools and teachers with interactive resources and workshops for years 3-6. From delivering the basics of understanding the concept of money and its values, through to the effectiveness of introductory goal setting and earning money.
Our intermediate programme delivers two unique face-to-face workshop experiences on budgeting and smart spending concepts. One workshop includes the use of augmented reality technology and all classes gain access to a free online learning platform for further reinforcement of teaching concepts.
All of our content is fully supported by teacher- and parent-based resource materials to promote ongoing learning in schools and at home. This section also provides promotional materials for newsletters, blogs, or social media posts to connect what is learnt to our communities and beyond.
What schools have to say about our programme
It is a great way to also get our students to start considering the value of money and especially for many of our children, how fortunate they are. We have spent time helping them to appreciate what they have and understand that money doesn’t just grow on trees!
– Cobham Intermediate
Wonderful programme, children were active in learning and having a great time. Awesome programme that probably wouldn’t really be covered in class time, real-life learning.
– Orewa Primary School
A fantastic real life experience for the children. Real-life context. Getting children involved was awesome!!! All children loved this. Well done, great explaining in simple terms.
– Avonhead School
Vane is an incredible asset to ASB! He is engaging and sparks fire in students about getting wise and taking financial literacy seriously.
– St Francis de Sales School
The enthusiasm of your staff is incredible and the children were engaged the entire time. Really tried to include all the children and managed behaviour really well.
– Clevedon School
Loved the superhero and interaction with the children. Very engaging and super fun. My class were focused and loved the workshop thank you.
– Bayview School
A fantastic programme that had the children (of mixed ages from Year 1 up to Year 6) engaged and entertained for the entire time! The children were able to articulate their learning after the programme. I would highly recommend this programme to other schools.
– Howick Primary School
My son Jake who is 9, listened to Vane at Brooklyn School a few weeks ago. Jake came home and announced he wanted to become an entrepreneur and also talked about interest with money in a bank account! Vane’s session with the class is the most inspiring thing he has ever heard. He is so motivated… Please let Vane know how inspirational he was. We think financial literacy is such an important subject and our son seems to have fully embraced it.

We will be scheduling regional roadshows to areas outside the main metropolitan areas, so schools from Kaitaia to Invercargill will be able to book ASB GetWise facilitators to come to their school and present to their students.
Wherever you are – get in touch today! We’re looking forward to visiting your school soon!
