Welcome to Technologies

At Joseph Banks Secondary College we pride ourselves in the opportunities that we provide for our students. The Technologies domain allows students to develop and master skills across three sub-domains; Home Economics, Information Technology and Design and Technology from years 7-12. Each sub-domain offers a variety of classes where students learn new skills as well as practice and develop old ones through a theoretical and hands on approach.
