The talented Technology Staff delivers contemporary Technology in a variety of subjects.

Food Technology

Junior students are engaged in learning the nutritional, cultural and social value of food, as well as the importance of kitchen safety. To extend their skills, Year 8 Students may choose the Elective Mini Masters Course, Master Chef.

Linking to our multi-cultural School Community and beyond, Year 10 students learn to appreciate and produce various authentic dishes, later sold in a school ‘street food’ experience.

Information and Communication Technology

Year 9 Students enthusiastically create their own fashion website, and design a magazine cover for their target audience. Competent use of professional software programs is integral to this process.

Product Design and Technology—Textiles

Students engage in the design process to create individual items. Original, hand-sewn soft toys are joyfully created by Year 7s. Year 8 Students explore the magic of screen-printing and begin to use the sewing machine. For the first time, girls in Year 9 enjoy the thrill of creating garments, whilst Senior Students extend their imaginations and skills to grasp new challenges, including entering competitions. Outstanding work has featured in Top Designs and excellent student work has been celebrated at the College Art Show, which includes a student-curated Fashion Parade.

Presentation College Windsor students are inspired by our talented teachers of Art, Studio Arts and Visual Communication Design.  Teachers are able to motive and engage students, enabling them to creatively produce outstanding work which is showcased in our annual School Art Show. Art links to our School Community are forged through our mini Archibald Portrait Exhibition in our new Art Gallery space and the Sister Raymonde Art Acquisitions. Our entries to the Catholic Education Week Art Show and Silk Cut Lino Printing Exhibition regularly attract attention and commendation.

From Year 7 to Year 12, a variety of Art forms is explored including Digital Art Making, Printmaking, Ceramics, Video, Painting, Sculpture Photography, Drawing and installation Art.

An integral part of student learning is exposure to Melbourne’s diverse Art scene, to view and analyse work in galleries and other locations. Senior Students travel to Sydney for the Sydney Biennale, and in alternate years, to Hobart, to experience MONA.

Through our partnership with Monash University, Year 12 students curate and exhibit their work at MUMA—an exciting opportunity to see their work in a professional gallery. We have also celebrated the selection of student work for Top Arts.

Our Artist in Residence Program, known to host internationally recognised artists, provides a valuable opportunity for students to engage with an artist at first hand.

The Performing Arts Faculty strives to provide an excellent foundation for student engagement and lifelong enjoyment of Performing Arts. Delivered by specialists in their field, our Contemporary Curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and extend our students. Student Learning is enhanced by the imaginative use of technology applications including: research, recording leading to evaluation and refinement of performances, producing background settings, composition, sound effects and moving images.

We passionately believe all students should have the opportunity to participate in the Performing Arts in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.  Extra-curricular activities, including Choirs, Musical Ensembles and Theatre Productions, provide opportunities for individual success and collaborations.

These talents are enthusiastically demonstrated in the annual Music Festival, held at Hamer Hall. Celebrated by the entire College Community, this exciting evening of song, dance and multi-media is choreographed, conducted and rehearsed entirely by Senior Students. Music Festival provides a unique opportunity for all students to experience performing in a professional theatre. 

Our students may also audition to participate in the School Musical performed with CBC St Kilda.

Presentation College Windsor runs a lively Theatre-in-Education Program for all Year Levels, and students attend exhibitions, productions and workshops at a range of theatre venues in Melbourne.
