Clevedon School has four houses, each made up of vertical groupings of staff and students across all year levels. Siblings are placed in the same house. The four houses are named after NZ native birds, Weka, Kaka, Kiwi and Tui.
The purpose of our house system is to:
- provide an opportunity for students from all levels of the school to interact
- build new friendships
- encourage older students to mentor and care for younger students
- build school spirit
- create a sense of identity and belonging
- promote participation and competition
- provide opportunities for student leadership and student voice
- provide a grouping through which we can deliver aspects of a pastoral programme

House Spirit Day
This year our annual house spirit day will be held on Friday 31st March. The purpose of house spirit day is to enable our house leaders to lead their house through a creative and fun event that highlights a key theme. The theme is yet to be decided.
The house leaders write and direct a skit and chant that aims to meet the success criteria given. They then must take their vision and teach up to 100 students in their house ready for Spirit Day. Following are some quotes from the house leaders about their experience...
I found house chants challenging and enjoyable - I particularly liked how everyone supported each other, cheered them on and encouraged others. This year was the first tie and I found that interesting. Being a part of one of the houses that won this year was very exiting and rewarding." Tayla
"The build up to house spirt was exciting, but tense we had lots of fun going out and buying the stuff we needed and building the props, We learn't some new skills in the process. I think that it was very stressful with the timeline that we had to get everything organised but it was all worth it as we won on the day." Connor
"This years house chant I feel displayed more of the values throughout all the house leaders and house students, encouraging everyone and making it more enjoyable for all involved." Lucia
"Awesome, great fun for everyone!" Tobin
"It was amazing watching everybody support and help one another. You wouldn't of thought it was a competition." Asha
