Design and Technology


Dream. Discover. Design.
Experience. Explore. Express.
Experience that dream. Express thy design. Discover and explore.


The mission of the department is to equip every child with the ability to solve real-world problems. Every child is engaged with activities which allow them to use design-based approaches to enhance daily life. 





This is based on three main areas of justification for design in general education:

  • Design develops innate abilities in solving real-world, ill-defined problems
  • Design sustains cognitive development in the concrete / iconic modes of cognition .
  • Design offers opportunities for development of a wide range of abilities in nonverbal thought and communication .
