HOME ECONOMICS

Overview

Home Economics is focusing on cooking for the love of food!

Students will explore a range of worldly cuisines and techniques. They will be participating in many different styles of recipes to increase their food knowledge. Skill level requirements increase throughout the years with students displaying team collaboration and leadership as they become highly skilled food specialists.

A knowledge of nutrition, selection of ingredients with a touch of sustainable resources and environmental impacts in the food industry gives students experience and knowledge to make their own food choices in the future.

Students prepare a number of own choice dishes throughout the semester and also prepare food in a larger scale to expose them to hospitality catering and preparing food for others.

Home Economics also invites the opportunity for students to discover what materials and textiles has to offer.

Students will be able to use a sewing machine to construct garments to fit themselves. Awareness of the types of materials and the care of fabrics and materials provides students with the ability to choose colours and fabrics that are suited to the themselves or for others.
