EPRO8 TECHNO CHALLENGE
On the 9th of November Lemi, Joryll, Hedy and Tina went to Northcross Intermediate to do an engineering challenge called the EPro8 challenge. We came third out of 12 teams. It was a miracle! We had loads of fun! Believe it or not, we got into the semi-finals! We got 260 points.
Target Road Nerds was our name, a really cool name... right?
Anyway, they provided the materials, and there were challenge cards. Out of the challenge cards there were 4 challenges. We chose the bridge challenge and the theme park challenge. We built a bridge that was 2.2 metres wide and 1 metre tall. We also built a contraption to make a balloon go: up 1.2 metres for 10+ seconds, up 2.4 metres, and up and over a small “building”.
Good job TRS Nerds!
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
The Day Of The Chess Tournament
On Tuesday the 8th of August Tymon, Harry, Joey and Keira went to a chess tournament. We got 11 points but Forest Hill A won. We were the TRS team. Tymon was 1, Harry was 2, Keira was 3 and Joey was 4. We played 6 games.
The chess tournament was at Wairau Intermediate School. It was hard because there was a timer for us to press every time we had our turn.
The weather was alright. No rain, only sunshine. Our teacher was Mr Madjar. He drove us with his car so we could get there faster than walking.

On March 1 2018 Target road school went to a cricket tournament at Onewa Domain with lots of other schools like Mairangi Bay and Manuka.
Mr Christianson coached the yellow team and Graham (Devante’s grandad) coached the green team.
The first game for the yellow team was against Manuka Primary, Joel was the captain of the yellow team, Nikhil and Joel were first to bat and were ready to smash the ball out of the field so when the bowler bowled to Joel he almost hit a four but the fielder stopped it so they just got two runs he was disappointed.
The next pair was Devante and Ezekiel the first person to bat was Ezekiel and he could really bat because he kept on hitting sixes and fours. The next people to bat were Nakansha and Kunal. They both managed to hit fours as the ball past the boundary. After Manuka batted the score was 71 to Target and 50 to Manuka.
Then the green team played against Campbells Bay the score at the end was 45 to Target and 53 to
Campbells bay so they lost the first game but won the rest of their games.
The final results were 5th to the yellow team and 4th for the green team.
At the end of the day it didn’t matter what place we came at least everyone had fun playing
cricket. Thank you to those parents who took us to the tournament in their cars and to Mr
Christianson and Graham for coaching us.
