Our staff are proud to share their knowledge of Music, Visual Art, Textiles, Computing Technologies, Industrial Arts, Food Technology and Hospitality with students and do so with a vision of nurturing students’ passion and preparing them to enter the workforce.

Our commercial kitchen provides an environment in which students develop their skills and experience in Food Technology and Hospitality. The excellent equipment in our commercial kitchen allows staff to cater for all levels of ability from preparing simple dishes to catering for events and earning a TAFE Certified Certificate II in Hospitality.

Through our computing curriculum, students develop their knowledge and skills using computer hardware and software. Our staff nurture student interest in technology, guiding them in learning to write basic computer programs and teaching the fundamentals of computer coding through the use of Arduinos, Lego Minstorm Robotics kits and other industry level software.

Our Industrial Arts curriculum is known within our community for immersing students in a world of practical experiences in which the learn to design, construct and evaluate a variety of projects sing materials including timber, metals and plastics. Students master skills using traditional hand and power tools, as well as experimenting with newer technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting.

Textiles students learn sewing techniques, with many opportunities to experiment with alternative textile skills and produce a variety of quality textile items.
