Courses Offered:

 

Years 7 - 10

 
Year 7 &8 students undertake a course which envelops all three areas of study listed below.
In the year 9 and 10 at Tully State High, Industrial Technology and Design is broken into three main subject areas listed below.
1. Industrial Technology & Design (Wood bias)
2. Industrial Technology Manufacture (Metal bias)
3. Graphical Communication (CAD and Drawing board)

​Industrial Technology

 
Industrial technology and design involves the design and manufacture of products, systems and graphical representations. Industrial technology refers to the procedures and techniques used to combine and process materials, organize and control systems into useful products. Industrial design focuses on the planning, creation and development of ideas and the communication of concepts and specifications for products.
 

Graphical Communication

 
The ability to communicate effectively is an essential requirement in every field of endeavour and often speech and writing cannot adequately fulfil our communication needs. Graphical communication, the universal language, is seen as an efficient and effective means of supplementing or replacing the spoken or written words. Many students, regardless of their educational or vocational aspirations, will benefit from an insight into the principles of graphical communication.
 

Year 11 & 12

 
The senior school boasts an exciting range of subjects that further develop the junior subjects learning and provide positive career path opportunities:

1. Cert 1 Furnishing (year 11)
2. Industrial Technology Studies (year 12)
3. Engineering Studies (year 11 & 12)
4. Technology Studies (year 11 & 12)
5. Senior Graphics (year 11 & 12)
6. Industrial Graphics (year 11 & 12)
 

TECHNOLOGY STUDIES

 
Technology Studies challenges you to understand and appreciate technological innovation and its impact on society. You will learn about the purposeful application of knowledge, resources, materials and processes to develop solutions to real-world design problems by generating innovative ideas and producing products.
In Technology Studies you will examine and create solutions to design problems. Design problems are based on identifying a need or responding to an opportunity.
 
 

ENGINEERING STUDIES

 
This course of Vocational Learning will develop student’s knowledge and understanding of industry practices, processes and practical skills. The course is practical in nature participation and delivery.
The course of study aims to:
- Equip students with broad based practical skill that can be further developed, directed or transferred to other technical situations including traineeships or school bases apprenticeships with in the engineering or manufacturing industries.
- Develop attitudes appropriate to student’s future participation in society and their understanding of career pathways for the world of work.
 

SENIOR GRAPHICS

 
Senior Graphics is about solving design problems graphically and presenting graphical products. You will use a design process to identify and explore the design needs or opportunities of target audiences; research, generate and develop ideas; and produce and evaluate graphical solutions. You will solve graphical problems in at least two of three design areas: industrial design, graphic design and built environment (architecture, landscape architecture and interior design).
Graphics contributes to your understanding and proficient use of technologies. It develops communication, analytical and problem-solving skills.
 

INDUSTRIAL GRAPHICS (MANUFACTURING)

 
The ability to communicate effectively is an essential requirement in every field of endeavour and often speech and writing cannot adequately fulfil our communication needs. Graphical communication, the universal language, is seen as an efficient and effective means of supplementing or replacing the spoken or written words. Many students, regardless of their educational or vocational aspirations, will benefit from an insight into the principles of graphical communication.
 

CERTIFICATE I IN FURNISHING - VET SUBJECT (Course Code LMF10108) & YEAR 12 INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY STUDIES

 
This Furnishing course enables students to receive a full Certificate I in Furnishing after completing a number of competencies by the end of Year 11 (Semesters 1 and 2). Following Certificate I in Furnishings, Semester 3 and 4 will continue to extend the students’ skill development in furniture making. This course of vocational learning will develop the student’s knowledge and understanding of industry practices, processes and practical skills. The course is practical in nature, participation and delivery.
