Meet your Board

Kristie Taurua - Parent Representative, Presiding Member   

I have two children, a 4 year old and 7 year old who attend Target Road School. I have worked for a plumbing company for the last 17 years doing accounts so I hope my financial background will enable me to have skills to help the Board with important decision making. My son has special needs and I am aware of how challenging it can be to meet his needs academically. I have an interest in being on the Board of Trustees as I hope to give back to the school and support the school and community. My husband and I have lived in the area for the last 12 years, and in my free time I enjoy exercising, renovating with my husband and eating out.


Katie Taylor - Parent Representative

Katie is a mum to three children who all attend Target Road School.  She has always been interested in children's education and previously worked as a Speech and Language Therapist at the Child Development Team and in a Special School.  Katie was involved with Playcentre Aotearoa (parent run early childhood centre) for many years.

Katie is passionate about natural health and healthy living and works part time as a Naturopath.  In her spare time she enjoys doing pilates and Zumba fitness.

Kevan Leadbeater - Parent Representative.

I am dad to Annabelle who attends TRS, and husband of Susan. I have been tutoring children of all year levels in English for the past 22 years, and wish to use this background to enhance education decisions for all our kura. I have a deep knowledge of cross - cultural issues and the associated challenges that affect learning, and aim to bring my skills and abilities to help generate ongoing advancements and change for the prosperity of our tamariki. I also help with literacy support. In addition, being a road patrol leader has given me a great understanding of health and safety issues in our immediate school vicinity and wider community and am passionate about getting vastly improved measures for TRS.

Geoff Nottage Parent Representative

I attended Target Road Primary School from 1983 to 1988 and I’m happy that my son and daughter are able to follow in my footsteps (year 2 and year 5 respectively). I have spent most of my life in the area and watched it change from a small suburb at the end of Auckland’s motorway to a more

densely populated and diverse area.

My recent employment history includes 5 years as the National Operations Manager for a Field Services team at a multinational electrical company and am now assisting with the Project Management/Delivery of Medium and Low Voltage electrical equipment to some of Auckland’s largest data centres.

I’m excited about being on the Target Road School Board of Trustees and believe I have a range of diverse skills and experience to support the school and school community in their short and

long term planning.

My name is Shane Reynolds and I am the board staff representative and Deputy Principal at Target Road.

I have a lovely blended Whānau with my wife, four daughters and a stepson ranging from ten to two years old. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy playing many sports such as football, touch rugby, cricket and golf. I love to travel and see the world. I am looking forward to working with the board as well at school to achieve the goals for all of our ākonga.
