Last year, I studied all three of the technology subjects offered at the Year 9 level – wood, metal and glass and found I enjoyed Wood Work the most. I love using my hands to create things that I can use at home and things I am able to be proud of, such as the drawers and shelving unit I made during the class. Choosing to participate in Wood Work has helped me gain skills with power tools, screwdrivers and saws – things I might not have used otherwise. Also, in a class with half males and half females, it’s nice to see the perception of technology subjects changing where it’s now acceptable for women to be doing the male-perceived classes. I enjoyed Wood Work so much that I hope to continue doing technology subjects in the future.
