Technologies enrich and affect the lives of people, cultures and societies globally. It is important that as a nation we make connections between creativity, technology and enterprise as a catalyst for twenty-first century innovation.

We depend upon technologies for food and fibre production, communication, construction, energy and water management, health and well-being, knowledge creation, information management, manufacturing and transportation. Australia needs enterprising individuals who can make discerning and ethical decisions about the use of technologies and independently and collaboratively develop innovative solutions to complex problems. Australians need to contribute to sustainable patterns of living for future generations. Furthermore, information and communication technologies, and social media in particular, have increased the pace of change and transformed learning, recreational activities, home life and work forever.

An appreciation of the processes through which technologies are developed and how they contribute to societies and cultures is a critical skill set to obtain. All young people need opportunities to shape and challenge attitudes to the use and affects of technologies by evaluating how their own solutions and those of others affect users.

With this in mind, Coorparoo Secondary College offers a diverse range of technology related subjects that will challenge students at every year level.

For 2015, it is envisaged that hospitality studies, and information, processing and technology (both authority subjects) will be added to subject options in the technology subject area.

Tertiary pathways in hospitality will also be a viable option for students as we have developed a partnership with the Institute of Culinary Excellence (ICE). This organisation operates from our college.
