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, 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 School roll continues to rise and reflects the growth in our Community and their confidence in the programmes and achievements of Clive Students and the School. These achievements are not only in the classroom but also on the sports field and in the many cultural activities that we offer.

That success is evident in many forms at Clive School from individual milestones where the inclusion of a comma or speech marks may be a highlight for a student to the team accolades for winning interschool sporting events.

Success always starts in the head of the individual’  

We have already exceeded our end of year roll prediction and as a consequence we will open our 3rd new entrant classroom on September 8th. We have employed additional highly experienced Teachers of Junior students to give these new Clive Kids the very best of starts to their schooling lives. The class will be taught in the room next to our Library which is currently used as an Audio Visual room. This has proved successful in the past and comes equipped with its own ‘en-suite’. Our Junior School team leader Mrs Scott, is currently stocking the room with all the equipment and resources needed by active, creative and engaged 5 year olds.

If you have any question please see the Principal or Mrs Scott.


Thank you to the parents who have been able to attend the ‘e-learning upskill sessions’ organised by staff both during and after school. It is great to see parents as connected as their children. Remember in this fast moving technological age ‘no question is a dumb question’. Miss Northe is congratulated for ensuring that no barriers exist for parents as their children engage with e-learning tools and for a timely ‘skills programme for parents’. The next session is ‘device and online safety, how you can keep your children safe at home.’  This session will take place in Week 6 (Tuesday).


On September 9th Clive Staff will host another ‘Bangers and Maths’ evening in Whakatu (similar format as to the previous). Whakatu has been chosen as the venue to ensure we include all.  A bus will depart from Clive at 6pm and return at the end of the session for those who need transport (no cost).  This session will have a different set of Math concepts, ideas and tips for parents to better support their children at home in developing Maths concepts. More info home soon.
