Home Economics


​The central focus of home economics is the wellbeing of people within their personal, family, community and work roles. Home economics encourages personal independence and effective living within wider society, and promotes preferred futures for self and others. Home economics is an interdisciplinary study drawing on the fields of nutrition, textiles and fashion, the built environment, human development, relationships and behaviour.

In home economics education, students become increasingly aware of the processes of growth and development and take increasing responsibility for their own growth and development. They make decisions and take actions to promote healthy eating and develop a sensitive approach to interpersonal relationships.
