Exploring the Intersection of Technology and Business for a Brighter Future
2023 Media Captain Lily Pietersen says “The main goal of Technology & Commerce Day is to increase engagement between all students and technology and commerce at Santa Maria College, not just those studying these subjects. We aim to show how talented our students are and demonstrate their incredible work in a fun, supportive environment.”
Lily adds, “The turnout of students at the Technology & Commerce Day displays, and activities were great to see, and the student work was extremely impressive. I highly recommend students take a media or commerce class, as they are fun and engaging and also broaden their knowledge of how the world works and create a stronger future for themselves and their community.
Lia Sly, Head of Technology & Commerce, says, “In today’s world, technology and commerce have a big impact on our lives. That’s why it’s really important to teach girls the skills they need to make smart choices, be leaders, understand how products are made, and realise how algorithms affect their shopping habits.”
Lia adds, “We not only foster the girls’ creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking abilities, but we also equip them with essential skills vital for thriving in the 21st century.”
Our Years 7 – 10 students have a wide range of exciting subjects to choose from, such as Media, Robotics, and various other business-related electives.
Likewise, our Years 11 and 12 ATAR students, who are considering careers in the field, have the option to select from Business Management Enterprise, Accounting & Finance, and Applied Information Technologies (AIT).
