In Carpentry, our students are taught how to create and make projects to high skill levels using a wide variety of tools and techniques.


In the senior school, students complete numerous projects throughout the year and work towards gaining BCITO and Competenz Unit Standard credits. Projects include bar stools, garden furniture, coffee tables, playhouses, sheds, etc.


Projects are either completed in the workshop or outside on a worksite at school. Most students either gain apprenticeship or employment opportunities after finishing this course or move on to EIT to enrol for various Building and Construction courses on offer.


Our BCITO courses specialise in the Building and Construction industry pathways with students also using portable power tools to build their projects.


The Competenz courses focus on Furniture making and students learn how to use hand tools and power tools to make furniture pieces to very high accuracy levels. Both courses prepare student with the necessary skills to move onto a variety of pathways in the Building and Construction Industries.
