Our goal in the Industrial Arts Department at Fairvale High School is to encourage students to become confident and efficient users of technology which will enrich and assist students in their studies, work and life.
We aim to provide opportunities to:
All students at Fairvale High School undertake a compulsory course in Technology Mandatory in their first two years at the school. This course is structured to not only meet the requirements of the Board of Studies, but to also give students grounding for subjects that they may elect to do in Years 9 and 10 (Stage 5).
With this in mind, students will have experience in working with a variety of materials including timber, metal, electronics, plastics as well as developing their skills in graphics and computer technologies.
