Home Economics

Home Economics is a strand of Learning for Life and Work.  Home Economics is designed to enable students to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills to make informed decisions about home and family which may improve the quality of life for themselves and others. The practical, productive tasks undertaken in Home Economics help students develop a range of skills which are essential for their present and future lives. Our Home Economics department provides opportunities for students to study a wide variety of subjects at different levels.
