Home Economics

We teach an exciting curriculum relating to nutrition, hospitality and consumer-based products within the food industry.

Students in Year 7 or 8 have the opportunity to complete a taster course in Home Economics. From Year 9 it is an optional subject leading to General courses in Food Science and Technology in Year 11 and 12.

Our multi-cultural environment provides an excellent opportunity for students to share their own cultural experiences and backgrounds with other students and showcase specific skills. A range of practical and theoretical activities and assessments are completed across the board giving students life skills for healthy living.

Students are involved in a range of functions, both for the school and community. In addition, students work in the student restaurant, organising and managing cafes and luncheons for customers and have the opportunity to learn barista skills.
