What is technology about?

Kaua e rangiruatia te hāpai o te hoe;
e kore tō tātou waka e ū ki uta.

Technology is intervention by design: the use of practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems (technological outcomes) that expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities. Adaptation and innovation are at the heart of technological practice. Quality outcomes result from thinking and practices that are informed, critical, and creative.

Technology makes enterprising use of its own particular knowledge and skills, together with those of other disciplines. Graphics and other forms of visual representation offer important tools for exploration and communication.

Technology is never static. It is influenced by and in turn impacts on the cultural, ethical, environmental, political, and economic conditions of the day. 

In technology, students learn to be innovative developers of products and systems and discerning consumers who will make a difference in the world.

The Promise

"For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength" - Philippians 4:13

We see Technology as a natural extension of God's creative and innovative Spirit in us.

We connect with Him through innovative and creative ways, seeking to meet the needs of our changing world, from a Kingdom perspective.
