At Whangaparaoa College Learners are given opportunities to experience as many areas of Technology as possible through their schooling from year 7 to 13. The Technology curriculum encourages learners to work through the technology process to solve a problem or issue, through trial and error, to learn from their mistakes and move forward to improve their design outcome. This is done through a combination of practical skills and theory to gain knowledge and understanding to develop concepts and ideas to turn into reality.
Technology areas we offer are: Food, Hospitality, Multi Materials, Building and Construction, Digital, DVC -design and visual communication, and Textiles Technology
All senior courses offer a range of Achievement Standards and in some cases Unit Standards.
To harness the Kaupapa of creative innovation, inspire our tamariki to discover the unexpected by challenging the expected. To become future problem solvers, whose sustainable and ethical practices are the kaitiakitanga by which they will improve the world we share.
