  • Food / Home Economics
  • Wood Technology
  • Materials & Design
  • Systems Engineering

Each subject occupies two periods per week and runs for one semester.  This enables students to experience a good cross-section of available technologies.  Year 7 students participate in weekly General IT classes, which equips them with the necessary skills to competently utilise the facilities and resources that the school offers.  Prior to the commencement of any practical work, students complete thorough safety competencies, which entitle them to a Safety Licence.

Students are required to participate in at least one Technology subject throughout the year.  Students are free to elect more than one subject if they wish.  At Lilydale High School all Year 10 students have the opportunity to commence the first two units of a VCE subject.

VCE (Year 11 & 12)

Each study is made up of four units.  It is encouraged that Technology students elect Units1 and 2 prior to Units 3 and 4.

Technology subjects offered at VCE include:

  • Food Technology
  • Systems Engineering
