Year 8 Design Technology

The Year 8 students have been working hard on their first production of a clock. They commenced with researching the type of clocks they would like to make, and then once a design was chosen, they placed it onto a piece of plywood.

The students have learned to use various tools to cut out their design and then display their creativity to decorate their clock. Many different varieties of materials were used in decorating their piece. They then placed the working mechanism into their clock to complete their product. Great results were achieved by the Year 8s!

Year 9 Wood

Students in Year 9 have been achieving wonderful results in producing a timber table this Semester. They were required to design the legs, rails and the top for the table. This process required them to join timber together to make the table legs, cut materials to the correct length, and learn how to join timber together using dowel and biscuit joints.

Students learned the correct method of how to sand timber, and are now learning to varnish their tables to create a quality finish to their product.
