In lower school we focus on Reasoning and Problem Solving to help students to learn how to use their mathematical skills and to develop higher order thinking processes.

The Mathematics Applications course is recommended to students who are pursuing elite trades, such as Heavy Plant Mechanics, Plumbing and Electrician Apprenticeships. General Maths courses are offered for students planning to attend TAFE/workforce.
