Art, craft, and design education inspires and challenges students to extend their creativity across the disciplines of language, mathematics and science. It equips students with the confidence, knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. Design and technology is a practical subject where students use creativity and imagination to solve real life problems. Students learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
