Welcome Year 7
Welcome Year 7
Welcome Year 7 students and parents to Sydney Technical High School. The first week has been an exciting and action-packed with many more thrilling activities in the coming weeks. The transition into high school can be a daunting experience but always reach out to your friends, classmates, Year 9 Peer Leaders, teachers and Year Adviser with any questions or concerns you may have. Remember you exist as a brotherhood of Techies now and that anything can be resolved in communication.
For the students and parents I have not personally met yet, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Nin Eath and I am a Social Sciences Teacher. I have had the pleasure of teaching Geography, Commerce and Business Studies at Tech for 2 and a half years now. I am delighted to be Year 7’s Year Adviser in their high school journey and committed that they have a fulfilling time here.

UNSW EAA - The Home of ICAS medalist
What an amazing week for Jordan Ka Truong 2016 UNSW EAA - The Home of ICAS medalist.
On Friday 25 November 2016, Jordan Ka Truong was awarded the ICAS Science Medallion at UNSW Kensington Campus for achieving a top mark in the Year 11 ICAS Science Competition, a one hour competition comprising 45 multiple choice questions. This is an internationally recognised competition, with over 20 countries and 1 million students sitting for the ICAS competitions in 2016. Tech annually participates in this competition, and has shown great results in previous years.
I encourage all students to work hard and reach their full potential, so they may be the future leaders of tomorrow.

Spice of Life
Oil on Canvas
In a world where the greatest pursuit is to blend in, culture and heritage has become the most submerged part of one’s life. My oil and impasto paintings depict my Grandfather and Grandmother sharply piercing into my own rich culture through their eyes, a window to their memories, stories and traditions. Inspired by Nicholas Harding’s thick texture and evident strokes, my artwork similarly holds his sentiments to transform ‘a normal sensible person’ into ‘unique in the art world’. It is only through the process of immersing myself within the textured wrinkles, the rough flesh and the folds of traditional clothing, that I have come to understand the importance of my Indian background in moulding the way I think now, and what I will become in the future. It is through completing this artwork that I have come to understand my background as the ‘Spice of Life’.
