Target Road School Have Their Say - Yes to a Skate Park!
Our community Police Officer Constable Penny Rusbatch needed our help.
Constable Penny has access to some funding that had been allocated to building a skate park at Sunnynook near the basketball courts. Due to the lack of feedback from our community the council seemed to think we do not want a skate park. Penny invited us to attend a meeting with councilors - George Wood and Jan O’Conner to show our communities support for the skate park.
As part of our learning inquiry last term – Turangawaewae - our children identified recreation is a very important part of our community. Therefore when Constable Rusbatch rang for help, to show support for a skate park, I agreed. I knew that a recreational skate park was important for our community because our children had told us though our inquiry.
The meeting was held today (Thursday 25 May) at 11am at the Sunnynook Community Centre, and 16 of our students attended on behalf of our school community. The children did a fantastic presentation to over 30 people to support the bid to have a skate park built. Constable Rusbatch was very grateful and wanted to hug all our students for a wonderful presentation
Below is the conclusion from our 2014 ERO Report
Target Road School provides its students with high quality education in a supportive, learning focused environment. School-wide developments are focused on improving outcomes for all students and teachers actively support students to be confident, effective learners. Students’ ideas and contributions are valued and used to shape the curriculum.
ERO is likely to carry out the next review in four-to-five years.
Here are our winners from Dance Off 2017
Mr Gu and our school chess team took part in the annual interschool chess competition at Wairau Intermediate last week. It was a great opportunity for our students to test their game strategies and moves with other players. For many of our team this was their first experience of chess competition and all of them are keen to take part again.
Poppy described the day as a “really cool” one. “It was very challenging, but really good fun,” she said.
Y5/6 GIRLS RIPPA TEAM NORTH HARBOUR CHAMPIONS
On Sunday, September 25th at North Harbour stadium, the Year 5/6 Girls Rippa rugby team made history winning the North Harbour Rippa Rugby Championship for the first time.
Despite the weather, and in trying field conditions, the girls were able to step up their performance to beat Stanmore Bay by 2-1 in a closely fought battle. Tries going to Danielle Hannah and Lavender Irankunda.
Leading up to the final, the girls had trained for four months and were undefeated in all 15 games, playing in four tournaments throughout the year.
We are very proud of what the girls have achieved -always displaying a high level of skill, sportsmanship and a ‘never give up’ attitude.
A huge thank-you goes out to our coaches Kimi, Carol and John who guided the girls throughout the year, giving up their time so generously to ensure we had a winning team.
Our very own John Christiansen won Harbour Sport Volunteer of the month
(A $500 sports voucher)
He spends a lot of his time in our school helping, coaching and transporting a variety of different sports teams.
Without his support it would be very difficult for us to organise these opportunities for our children.
WE THANK and APPRECIATE you John, Thank you for everything you do for our kids.
