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
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 that is chosen each year.
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...
