Technology

Technology is intervention by design through the exploration and application of specialist skills and knowledge. Our school offers the study of Technology in the areas of Design & Visual Communication, Digital Technology, Food Technology, Materials Technology - Fabrics, Materials Technology - Metal and Materials Technology - Wood. We foster students’ innovation and creativity within these technological practices. In addition to gaining practical skills, students hone their analytical and critical thinking in these subjects.  Many of our ex-Technology students go on to Tertiary study and some have even started their own successful technology-based businesses while at University.
