Purpose of Study

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous, and practical subject. It is about providing opportunities for children to showcase their creativity and imagination to design and make innovative products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and other’s needs. It also helps to provide contexts for children to explore broader issues such as environmental impact and sustainability. The children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

Our school's DT lead is Miss Thandi.
