About Us

Yarra Ranges Tech School

Yarra Ranges Tech School is part of the Victorian Government's commitment to make Victoria the 'Education State'. We draw on the Lilydale Lakeside Campus, facilities and our stakeholders to introduce students to the applications of human-centred design thinking and innovative leading-edge technologies as a means of problem solving real-world challenges.

We also introduce teachers to new pedagogies and ways to bring technology into the classroom. Our programs emphasise critical Enterprise skills in addition to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) skills required for the 21st century.
