Year 7 & 8 Technology Hub

The most comprehensive approach to Technology learning in the Wairarapa


The Makoura College Technology Faculty was opened in 2006 by Prime Minister Helen Clark to act as a comprehensive service hub for students of the surrounding area.


Students are taught in 90-minute classes, spending nine weeks in each rotation of Hard Materials, Computer-Aided Design, Food Technology and Soft Materials.  The eight NZ Technology curriculum strands are covered over a two-year cycle, including the recently revised Digital Technologies pathway.


Students access a variety of Technology pathways through hands-on learning experiences.  The design process underpins our practice.  Students learn through planning and investigation, a foundation for future studies and real-world applications.


This is the only Technology programme in the Wairarapa that offers students comprehensive, engaging and immersive learning within the NZ Technology curriculum.
