At Cape Naturaliste College Home Economics is a vibrant, busy, dynamic and popular subject. Our aim is to provide students with valuable life skills they can use daily and for future employment. Home Economics forms part of the Technology and Enterprise subject area.
Our overall mission is to encourage sustainability and good budgeting to enable students to gain transferable skills whereby they can adapt recipes at home, be creative in both foods and textiles, and maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle.
All year 7 students participate in a short introductory foods course, which allows them to develop the initial skills necessary for all classes. If students choose to continue studying this subject they will progress their skill level each year.
Classes are based on practical activities, which complement their learning in the theory lessons.
