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

Bite into Literacy…

Well parents again you showed that we do have a great partnership in the teaching and learning process with your children.  We had 75 adults and 95 children attend the Literacy evening on Tuesday Night at School.

While children ate sausages apples and drank (milk) and viewed a DVD or so their Parents had the opportunity to discover and experience a whole range of very useful      activities and tools to help lift children’s writing both home and school.

All staff were thrilled to see so many attend because it really does lift teachers when they know that parents want like them only the very best for these children.

Many thank you to Mrs Wilburn and Mrs Smith for organising the evening and to everyone else for their input just love it.  We as a staff will hold another in term 3 in Whakatu, similar to the maths evening we held last year.
