Nau mai harere mai, Kia ora – Welcome

CLIVE KIDS are connected, engaged and creative. If you are as excited about the potential of your child as we are then they will thrive at Clive School.

Our community is situated in a semi-rural locality,t nestled between Napier and Hastings in ‘The Bay’, established in 1879. We don’t just live traditions we create them. Partnerships between and within our community of learners are strong. We hold and share high achievement expectations for all children and we work hard to achieve each student’s potential. Learning is relevant, culturally meaningful and modern (Brian Eales – School Principal).

Words of Wisdom from Mr Eales

The Curriculum at Clive School over the previous nine weeks culminated in the student lead production ‘Is this my home?’

It show cased our Inquiry based learning approach and our creativity in designing learning opportunities that were real and actively engaged all of the children in learning. .

Being creative is the very essence of our iwi kiwi ness, of our nations #8 wire ability. We are world leaders in creativity and it all starts in our children’s heads with self-belief and risk taking.

As a school we are charged with making learning real. We do this partly by being able to co construct learning situations that help children make some sense out of this mad crazy world we all live in. And then by giving them the ‘tools’ to get out and do it.

It is important to know that as ‘bumble bees’ and in spite of our shape and size we can fly, we do fit in and we all have a part to play. Be it in the real world or here in this unreal world on our own stage.

Every one of our children who were on stage, has had a role to play in making success happen, and that is an important part of growing up as great citizens. Being able to;

contribute to the success by being a team member,

sustaining collaboration,

value each other’s contribution and

enjoying what we do

Creativity is the ‘futures skill’ that is needed most … the knowledge skills at our age levels of ‘reading, writing and number’ is only a part, a small part of what the world really needs.

Talented Staff at Clive are doing more than their bit by ensuring the right atmosphere and culture exists, to work with parents and grow creative CLIVE KIDS and allowing them to experience and be a part of a better future.
