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).

Monday Assembly – Week 8, Term 1 2017

Words of Wisdom from Mr Eales

Welcome back everybody to Term 2 2017.

Term 2 is always a great term, as routines are well established friendships and ways of working together collaboratively are entrenched. But perhaps the greatest of all is the role that the weather plays on a daily basis.

It is generally mild but every now and then a dark wet cold day eventually gives way to a magical sunny slice of paradise that we enjoy in this part of Hawke’s Bay.

The builders have finished working on rooms 7 & 8 and it looks great. This will ease some of the logistics for students and staff of working in an innovative way, especially at years 5 & 6.

We are well on track towards getting the new classroom underway having finalised the building plans it is now a matter of securing the final green light from the Ministry of Education Property Division and then we go to tender.

Our architect is Paul Dougan from Napier.

Ka haere nga tamariki ki nga kura
Children go to school

Ki te ako i nga mea o te ao
To learn things of this world

Ara ki te whiwhi i te matauranga
That is to acquire knowledge

He awhi tetahi i tetahi
To help each other

Kia kaha, puritia kia u, kia mau
Be strong, hold fast, hold firm.
