Children love being recognised for their efforts and achievements – and we love to give them that recognition. We celebrate your child’s maths and English achievements, big and small. Tutoring at NumberWorks’nWords is based on success. Each child feels more confident about themselves as a learner when they experience success. Tutors provide positive interaction, certificates are awarded and centre-wide celebration is given when students move up a level. You may have been in the centre and heard the clapping and cheering when this happens. It’s so rewarding to see the smiles on the children’s faces and how proud they are of their achievements.

A street synonymous with student partying was given an extreme tidy-up by those honouring one of their own.
Sophia Crestani, 19, was killed in a stairway pile-up during a party last year.
In July, her Wellington-based parents launched The Sophia Charter, which included agencies working on a range of measures, including cracking down on large parties and reducing rubbish in the area.
Crestani’s family called for a mass cleanup of the student quarter following her death, and that was again repeated on Friday at noon.
Hundreds of students, armed with rubber gloves, brooms, and rubbish bags took to the student quarter.
Crestani's childhood friend Emily Jenner, 20, said the cleanup, which centred around the notorious student hotspot of Castle St, was about '’putting the charter into action''.
