The Technologies Department encompasses two learning areas:

  • Design & Technology
  • Home Economics

We provide specialist facilities across all materials in order to provide students with the widest possible experience.

Students work in a safety conscious, supportive environment where they learn to work both independently and as part of a team assisting and respecting each other.

Design & Technology

Students have opportunities to select from a range of technologies, materials, tools and equipment. They consider the ways characteristics and properties of technologies can be combined to design and produce solutions. They develop strategies which enable them to consider social, ethical and sustainability factors. Students’ use of creativity, innovation and enterprise is encouraged to increase both independence and collaboration.

From Years 7 to 12 students are exposed to the increasingly complex sequences and steps involved in design tasks. They develop plans to manage design tasks, including safe and responsible use of materials and tools to successfully complete design tasks. Wood, Metals, Plastics, Graphics and Computer-Numeric-Controlled production techniques are used in design and manufacturing.

Our Staff have strong connections to industry and guide our upper school cohort with opportunities to study Building & Construction, and Materials Design and Technology in both Wood and Metals, to ensure students can apply themselves to career opportunities in the highly competitive Western Australian job market.

Home Economics

Home Economics responds to current trends and community initiatives when planning our programs. We consider the needs of individuals, families and community groups by meeting students’ cognitive, physical, social and emotional needs.  Our teachers offer opportunities for students to develop social and teamwork skills through practical activities. We are always striving to improve learning experiences in classroom activities by being creative and innovative as well as supporting the school’s literacy focus.

Year 7 to 12 students experience food preparation in a variety of situations as well as gaining a thorough background in nutrition and healthy living. Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is a feature of our school.  Students work with foods as a commodity and explore current food styles, ingredients and the nutritional value of food.

  • Food Science and Technology General 
  • Certificate II in Hospitality 
  • Certificate II in Cookery
  • Building and Construction General 
  • Materials Design and Technology General – Metal
