Home Economics - Student Information

What will I learn in Home Economics?

Some of the things you will learn about are:

• Your body - what is good to eat and how to keep healthy?

• Food - how it nourishes your body, how to choose it, store it, and how to prepare and cook it

• using money - how to spend it wisely, how to save it, and how you are protected as a consumer

• Your home - about design in the home, about safety and hygiene

• Design and craftwork, child development, textiles –you will carry out a project in one of these areas.


Is learning Home Economics anything like what I did in primary school?

In SPHE and SESE: Science you will have learnt about your body, how to care for it and the correct foods to eat. You will have made some items in Visual Arts which will be useful when you start sewing in class. You will have weighed and measured items and materials in Mathematics. You will have studied topics related to the family in SESE (History, Geography and Science).
