Bulahdelah Central School Year 7 students are developing a range of skills by using different forms of technology through the technology-mandatory course.
Classes are operated on a rotational basis.
Students recently completed the first rotation in the context areas of woodwork, food technology and coding.
The timber class constructed two projects, a door stopper and a jewellery box during the four-week rotation.
The boxes were made from radiata pine and took two weeks to complete.

The construction process involved measuring, cutting, sanding, securing joints, fitting an inlay and applying a wax finish.
Students enjoyed seeing their projects develop from basic raw materials into a finished product.
"Making the jewellery box was really good because I can now keep all my rings and neck laces in it and keep them safe," Amarlieah Mobbs said.
"I learnt a lot of new skills and realised that I am capable of helping out with maintenance work at home," Adayna Aro said.
