Digital Technologies


​​Digital Technologies students benefit from access to the outstanding resources at our Centre of Excellence in Automation and Robotics, including a new multi-million dollar Robotics and Design complex.

Years 7 & 8 – Compulsory subject

All students will inevitably move into careers that involve knowledge and use of different computer-based technologies. This subject allows students to become makers of technology, not just users. Topics covered include: Robotics, Coding and Game development.

Years 9 & 10 – Elective subject

The rapid expansion of new technologies in society has had an impact in almost every industry. Digital Technology provides students with skills equip them for their future in 21st Century society. Topics covered include: Robotics, Drones, Immersive Technologies (Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality) and Coding. In this subject, students benefit from cutting-edge resources and unique learning opportunities made possible through our Centre of Excellence in Automation and Robotics.

Years 11 & 12

Digital Solutions – General Senior Subject (ATAR)

Digital Solutions enables students to learn about algorithms, computer languages and user interfaces through generating digital solutions to problems. Students engage with data, information and applications to create digital solutions that filter and present data in timely and efficient ways while understanding the need to encrypt and protect data. They understand personal, local and global impact computing and the issues associated with the ethical integration of technology into our daily lives.  Students use problem-based learning to write computer programs to create digital solutions that: use data; require interactions with users and within systems; and affect people, the economy and environments. They develop solutions using combinations of readily available hardware and software development environments, code libraries or specific instructions provided through programming.  Students create, construct and repurpose solutions that are relevant in a world where data and digital realms are transforming entertainment, education, business, manufacturing and many other industries.

Certificate III in Aviation (VET)

This exciting Drone Pilot qualification is relevant to the role of a Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight working in the Aviation Industry, below 400 feet above ground level, in day visual meteorological conditions.  In addition to the Certificate III qualification, students in the course can also receive the following Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) licensed outcomes: Remote Pilot Controllers Certificate (RePL), Aeronautical Radio Operators Certificate (AROC) and Aviation English Language Proficiency Test (A-ELP).

Certificate III in Information Technology (VET) 

The Certificate III Information Technology qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual to be competent in a wide range of ICT technical functions as an advanced technology user. Students will be equipped to work in a range of ICT areas, including technical support, network administration, web technologies, software applications and digital media technologies.

Information and Communication Technology – Applied Senior Subject (Vocational)

Information and Communication Technology is concerned with skills in applying knowledge of ICT to produce solutions to simulated problems referenced to business, industry, government, education and leisure contexts.

This subject area will equip students with knowledge of current and emerging hardware and software combinations, an understanding of how to apply them in real-world contexts and the skills to use them to solve technical and/or creative problems. Students will develop knowledge, understanding and skills across multiple platforms and operating systems.
