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

We are very excited about sharing with our community the School Production, ‘Is This My Home’.  The performance will showcase how our students are persevering in their learning, whilst actively participating and contributing in their classrooms aspect of the performance.

Each night classes will leave the stage and return to their classrooms once the show has finished.  We ask that all parents/caregivers/families pick up students from the classrooms.  Students will not be released to meet you, they need to be picked up from the classrooms.  Pick up time is at 8pm.


Congratulations to Mr Bassett and the Elective Kapa Haka group – we are extremely proud of your efforts at Monday’s festival (19th September).
