NZ’s largest ATM network now features Te Reo Māori
Users of New Zealand’s largest ATM network will from today be able to do their banking in Te Reo Māori.
All of ANZ’s 650 ATMs throughout New Zealand now give users the choice of using Te Reo, coinciding with the start of
Māori Language Week.
“Te Reo Māori is fundamental to our national identity and this is a milestone in our commitment to the language. We hope
this gives people another opportunity to use Te Reo in daily life,” said Antonia Watson, ANZ’s Managing Director Retail
and Business Banking.
To mark the occasion, colourful artwork from the students at the bi-lingual unit of Sylvia Park School Te Puna Waiora,
was unveiled at the ATM at ANZ’s 205 Queen St branch in Auckland.
The students were asked to create designs in the theme of ‘Why Te Reo is important to them’. Each individual design was
then compiled and now features on four ATMs in Auckland and Wellington.
