Woodwork Balcatta SHS

Technologies

Each year, Balcatta Senior High School builds on expanding the range of qualifications we have to offer our students.

Design and Technologies

The Design and Technologies Department may be more familiar to parents as ‘Manual Arts’. We offer Metalwork, Woodwork, Plastics, Jewellery, and Building and Construction.

Students may choose to take courses in this area in Years 11 and 12 to count towards achievement of WACE by the end of Year 12.

While there are no perquisites for the Year 11 and 12 courses, students are advised to choose a Design and Technologies pathway in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10, as each course builds on the skills taught in previous years.
