Our department is based in E Block where we have six computer labs. There are five specialist teachers and two full-time technicians for support. Facilities include Wi-Fi access and data projectors in all rooms.

The Department is guided by its own vision statement: “We endeavour to ensure our DTG students are confident in using technology, engaged in a challenging curriculum that is focused on inquiry-based hands-on learning, and develop responsibility for their own educational success.”
