The Technology Faculty aims to provide opportunities for students to gain academic qualifications and develop practical skills and experience in four different and yet related fields of Technology study.
The Technology Faculty encompasses a wide range of subjects that all involve practical activities in varying forms.
Technology challenges students in a way unlike any other subject. Within areas such as construction and materials technology, food processing technology, design and visual communication, coding, creative design processes and production, students work creatively and analytically to identify, trial and evaluate potential solutions, and put their ideas into practice in an authentic contexts with end users in mind.
The Technology has natural inter-relationships with other subjects such as the sciences, social sciences, languages, the arts and health and physical well-being.
The Technology curriculum at Year 9-10 focuses on ensuring students develop literacy and numeracy skills as well as develop critical thinking, problem solving and ensuring students are resilient and well prepared as the move into the senior years (11-13).
Courses are designed and the standards are chosen to provide the right balance of practical skill development and related academic learning.
