The Home Economics programme seeks to:
Home Economics has an important contribution to make to the whole school curriculum. Home Economics combines aspects of science, nutrition, cooking, parenting skills and finance. Home Economics also allows students to explore and debate topics around the key concepts of home and family life and independent living. Students learn about diet and health in a practical context- through preparation of food and the planning of meals. It also encourages students to think about their relationship with food in a positive way, to challenge the way they choose food, and to inspire a love for food and a willingness to experiment and be creative with food.
Students learn about the inter-relationships between diet, health, family, home and choice and the management of resources.
As a result, students become more informed and responsible to make choices about their health, their family relationships and their resources now and in the future.
