The Design faculty recently purchased two laser cutters. These machines will add enormous value to the teaching and learning within the Design department.

Our Year 9 Design class are currently working on a unit in which they inquire into the identities and relationships that can often be found within communities. After their initial inquiry stage they will design and make light boxes using our laser cutters.

The images show two of our Year 9 students and keen designers, Will Barry and Nick Tan, with their personalised timer. These two young men spend much of their free time in the Design workshop working on various projects, the most recent of which is constructing native bee hives ready for when we split our existing hives, which we hope to do early next year.
