Technology Routation

Every Tuesday and Thursday we(year 7 and 8s) get the opportunity to go down to Tamaki collage for Technology.We are focusing on 3 subjects Hard Materials, Food and Graphics. So far I have been in two rotations(Hard Materials and Graphics). The final rotation is my favourite Food!

For the first term I went to graphics. The graphics teacher name is Mr Nobel. We made posters and drew pictures. We also used a compass to help us draw perfect circles.

For the second rotation we made a necklace out of pewter. We had to make a template out of wood. Then cut it out. My template was a turtle and I was making it for my mum.After the pewter was poured into the template we had to file it and sandpaper it. Then the teacher Mr Grundy polished it for us.Then it was ready.

I think going to Tamaki college for technology is a good because we get to learn new things and use machinery.Its also helps us year 8's learn more since were going to college next year.
