Workshop Courses

At St James Catholic College students in Years 9 and 10 have the opportunity to select workshop as an elective and focus in one or more of the areas listed below. Years 7 and 8 students participate in workshop as a taster subject.

Design Wood

In this area students will be asked to work through a design process to come up with a plan to enable them to to make an item using wood. Items such as a coffee table, bookshelf or cabinet are good examples of what our students learn to create.

 

Design Technology

Students can work between both the wood and metal areas in Design Techonology. They have the opportunity to repair an item such as a lawn mower. There is flexibility as to what students endeavour to make; an example of such a project could be a timber topped coffee table with metal legs.

 

Design Metal

In this area students will work through a design process to come up with a plan to enable them to purchase metal to make a project. Many students may start the year learning to weld so they are able to have the skills to join metal. Projects can include a weight bench, repair stand or a motorcycle stand.
