Food Technology and Home Economics

Home Economics provides learning contexts in selecting, preparing and serving food to ensure the empowerment of individuals and families to make informed choices in their lives in the most basic of ways.  Home Economics teaches the importance of critical and reflective thinking about social issues towards enabling optimum health, focusing on how students can be empowered both individually and collectively.

Home Economics learning experiences enable students to develop competencies, making connections between their daily lives and their future world, and to strengthen their understanding of the interconnectedness of dependence, independence and interdependence within families and society.

The Home Economics body of knowledge continues to be relevant and meaningful for students today and in the future.  Within international and national contexts there is resurgence in Home Economics, as it is increasingly recognised as relevant to meeting current and future social needs.
