Technology Learning Area
Technology Education is offered in four areas at St Johns College: Materials Technology, Food Technology, Digital Technology and Design and Visual Communication.
While the subject content varies between Technology areas, the practice used is very much the same with a focus on producing quality outcomes that are derived from issues that are of interest to our students.
While our major focus is around skill development and producing quality outcomes, students are also taught to self-manage, solve problems and work with others.
Students have the opportunity to visit local industry and work with Industry mentors. They will identify and work with stakeholder and community groups from outside our school environment. They will also have the opportunity have contact with, visit and participate in activities with local tertiary providers.
While participating in senior Technology classes, students will be exposed to and have the opportunity to gain knowledge about a range of career pathways available to them.
