Technological and applied studies

Technology and Applied Studies (TAS) is mandatory for all students in Year 7 and 8. Students can also select from a range of elective TAS subjects.

In TAS, students develop knowledge, understanding and skills through a design and production process using a range of tools, materials and techniques in theory and practical lessons.

The continuum of technology learning is:

  • mandated from Kindergarten to Year 8 through Science and Technology K-6 and Technology Mandatory Years 7-8 syllabuses
  • based on students becoming increasingly sophisticated in their ability to apply knowledge, skills and understanding to design and produce solutions
  • optional for student specialisation in high school through a range of syllabuses addressing particular technologies and aspects of design.

The Technology and Applied Studies (TAS) faculty at Riverstone High School is a diverse group of passionate and highly skilled teachers, who are committed to providing a supportive quality educational learning environment where students are provided with every opportunity to succeed and reach their personal best. TAS is an educational area based on skill development, innovation and creative thinking practices and encompasses a range of technologies including computing, food and timber.
