Welcome to the Gymea Technology High School website. At our school we aim for all students to achieve their full academic potential in a supportive and nurturing environment.
There are many benefits to be gained by attending Gymea Technology High School as an international student. One of the advantages of our school here at Gymea is that it is a special Technology High School. Besides studying the usual range of courses and Higher School Certificate subjects, our students are able to explore aspects of technology through specially designed elective courses across the school’s total curriculum and accelerated computing classes for talented students. To strengthen literacy, there is  a specialist English class for students from non-english speaking backgrounds in Years 11 and 12 . Targeted academic and welfare  support  is also readily available.
Our school’s purpose is to equip you, our students, to take your place in the community. The facts you learn and the skills you gain in your study of each subject are most important; but just as important will be the way you develop as members of this school community. You will learn to think logically, to express yourself clearly, to examine both sides of an argument, to draw conclusions and to make judgements. You will learn of other cultures and other points of view, and learn to work together with others. You will also come to appreciate the origins and values of our society and how these have developed. Teachers are always ready to help students at any time, but if you have a particular problem, your Year Adviser is always there to assist with extra advice and guidance

Teachers are important in your learning, but you, the students, are the most important. To succeed, it is you who must give of your best. To enjoy your secondary school life, you should participate in the full range of opportunities that your school offers you. If you do all of this, I know your time at Gymea Technology High School will be both happy and rewarding.
