Technological 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 use a range of tools, materials and techniques in the design process and technological experiences through theory and practical lessons. As well as the mandatory study of technology, students can select from a range of elective TAS subjects.
The continuum of technology learning is:
based on students becoming increasingly sophisticated in their ability to design and produce solutions for authentic needs and opportunities
an option for student specialisation in high school through a range of syllabuses addressing particular technologies and aspects of design.
Cowra High School is located on the ancestral lands of the Wiradjuri people, the traditional custodians. We recognise their unique, ongoing spiritual connection to this land and their rich contribution to this region. Cowra High School is committed to developing a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture as a path to reconciliation and a positive future. We pay our respects to our Elders, both past and present, and acknowledge our continued role in nurturing the next generation of emerging leaders.
