As a member of NCHENZ you can access Spellodrome for $19.00 per child per year instead of the standard $50 subscription rate. You can find out more at the Spellodrome website. Mathletics is offered by the same company – if you also have Mathletics then you will be able to use the same log in details and switch between the two programs with ease.

The subscription begins on 28th February 2019 and expires 20th February 2020.

Late subscribers will be able to access a pro-rata price as follows:

  • Join to start on 28th February or any time after that date in Term 1 – $19.00
  • Join any time during Term 2 – $17.65
  • Join any time during Term 3 – $14.00
  • Join any time during Term 4 – $10.75
  • Join between 1st and 15th December – $8.45

The expiry date will be 20th February 2020 no matter when you start. Subscriptions may not be set up during the school holidays as our volunteers may be on leave. Subscriptions will not be set up from 15th December until the end of January while our volunteers have a break before the large number of renewals in February each year.

Refund policy:

The NCHENZ policy is not to give refunds if you change your mind after making payment unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you feel you have exceptional reasons for requesting a refund, please write to the NCHENZ Committee at within seven days of receiving your log in details and they will consider your request. After seven days it is unlikely that a refund will be approved because NCHENZ will have paid the supplier for your subscription. In the case where a refund is approved, the funds will be paid to the original payer only and a NZ bank account number must be provided. An administration fee of $5/subscription will be deducted from all refunds.

Please note:

While NCHENZ is appreciative of being able to offer a reduced Spellodrome subscription to members, please note that this should not be seen as an endorsement or promotion of the program. We offer this as a service to our members simply because the opportunity has arisen and we think our members will be interested.
