The qualities of persistence, motivation and resilience led all our Year 12 Design and Technology students critically and creatively through the design process. They produced authentic solutions to genuine needs in our society through the production and documentation of their Major Design Projects.
One hundred percent of our Design and Technology students received Band 5 or 6 in their final HSC result in 2016, Congratulations to these students and to their teacher Mrs Kim Rowston who worked tirelessly and meticulously to ensure every student was challenged and producing her best work.
Seventy eight percent of our HSC Food Technology students received Band 5 or 6. We congratulate Jessica Smith who was placed 5th in the state in this course, the second successive year Loreto Kirribilli has placed in the state in Food Technology. Ms Corinne Coleman worked consistently and closely with these girls to produce such outstanding results.
Our Hospitality students gained very valuable workplace skills and experience through their HSC studies and we are very proud to report in this cohort 93% of students achieved Band 5 or 6. Congratulations to all TAS students on their success and we wish them well for life beyond Loreto Kirribilli.
This year the TAS faculty goal will focus on Creativity and Communication through the exciting launch of e-portfolios across 7-10 Technology and Design and Technology classes.
This digital platform allows students to be more creative and experimental in their approach to the documentation of their portfolio’s, it also allows for consistent and constructive feedback from teachers of students’ work in progress.
We warmly welcome Mr Jonathon Mascorella as a permanent staff member to the TAS Department and Ms Beatriz Ponte who joins us for Semester One. These new members of staff as well as Ms Corinne Coleman, Mrs Louise Booth, Mrs Georgina Don, Ms Romalina Rocca and myself, are delighted to be creatively and collaboratively educating your daughters in 2017.
