Technological and applied studies

The study of Technologies is mandatory for all students in Years 7 and 8.

Students can also select from a range of elective Technologies courses in Years 9 and 10 including Design and Technology, Food Technology and Textiles Technology. 

In Technologies, students develop knowledge, understanding and skills through a design and production process using a range of tools, materials and techniques in theory and practical lessons including textiles, food, digital, electronics and engineering.

The continuum of technology learning is based on students becoming increasingly sophisticated in their ability to apply knowledge, skills and understanding to design and produce solutions.

Stage 6 courses offered in Years 11 and 12 include Textiles and Design and Engineering Studies. In Year 11 students may complete a Visual Design course as 1 unit.

Information Processes and Technology (a Stage 6 course) is offered as an accelerated elective in Years 9 and 10.
