About us


Wyndham Tech School complements and extends the curriculum of our partner schools. It acts as a hub to engage students and the community in project-based activities using technology and processes inspired by our local industry, including Health, Transport and Logistics, Professional Services, Agriculture, Building and Construction.

Over 24,500 students from 34 secondary schools across Wyndham and Hobsons Bay are invited to undertake STEM programs, interact with advanced technologies and attend industry events each year.
