Home Economics

Home Economics
It is almost the end of term and it has been a very busy and productive first term in Home Economics. Our yr 8 students are currently finalising their first textiles assessment which was to make themselves an apron that they can use in future cooking classes. Many of the students gained valuable sewing skills throughout this term and finished up with a product that they can use for the year in their future home economics cooking classes. Many of the students had a great time designing a sewing their aprons and are very proud of their efforts as you can see from the pictures provided.
The Year 9 Home Ec class has had a busy term learning all about ‘Healthy Living’ - the functions of food and the nutrients we need to thrive. They've cooked wholesome family meals to take home every week, focusing on a different theme each time. Menus such as low fat, high fibre and budget meals were researched, planned and cooked. They are finishing off the term with a fun Easter workshop cooking food of their own choice.
The start of next term sees the return of Mrs Petersen who has been away on leave. In her absence Alicia Stanley has been her replacement for term one and a massive thank you must go to Mrs Stanley for her hard work and effort over the first term of this year. Overall, it has been another successful term for Home Economics and I am looking forward to what textile projects and what cooking delights are in store for next term.
