Digital Technologies

 
Digital Technologies has recently been introduced across the Junior School in order to fulfil the Australian Curriculum requirements for Digital Technologies. This subject area focuses on using the design process to solve real world problems in order to create a better future. It does this within the context of digital solutions including robotics, game design, application development, website design, data management and networking.

Senior School

 
We currently offer an Authority Registered subject called Information Communication and Technologies. Within this course, students are exposed to topics such as Animation, Digital Imaging, Graphic Design and Application Development. Tasks are usually project based. These tasks provide students with an opportunity to create digital content and develop skills with IT that will be useful in the workplace.
 
After successful implementation of the National Curriculum: Digital Technologies, we hope to be able to offer an Authority (OP) level subject to our tertiary bound students.
