Craft & Technology

The Craft & Technology Department's aim is to develop an environment and curriculum that nurture students to think creatively, innovate and be responsible members of society. Through this, we hope our students become independent thinkers who are activists of innovation, who are instilled with a genuine love for aesthetics and gracious living.
