Technology & Applied Studies (TAS)
The faculty of Technology & Applied Studies (TAS) is responsible for the delivery of a wide variety of exciting and engaging subjects, all of which offer outstanding training and educational opportunities specifically aligned to industry and career pathways incorporating many transferrable skills. These include Industrial Arts and Home Economics subjects.
Many of our subjects contain substantial practical components, and as such require us to charge fees in order to pay for the large amount of consumable products that we use during the year. For more information on fees for specific subjects please click here.
As you will appreciate, we consider the safety and well-being of our students the most important aspect of our job and therefore have in place very stringent WHS polices and standards. For detailed information on WHS standards, policies and clothing/footwear requirements, please click here.
2016 saw the completion and use of the Trade Skills Centre (TSC) facility, please click here. In Hospitality the TAS faculty will have access to an amazing industry standard facility and tools. In 2108 we now have a fully equipped commercial kitchen allowing the offering of both Kitchen Operations and Hospitality Cert II (Food & Beverage).
In our Food Technology Labs we aim to minimise all risks to students. We have implemented the latest DEC policy whereby we do not include any nuts or ingredients derived from nuts in our recipes. We cannot guarantee that utensils used in the food labs have not been in contact with allergens in previous uses. We require the following form to be completed and updated by parents or carers at the start of the course. click here too view the requirement.
