HOME ECONOMICS
 
Are young Australians becoming “Couch Potatoes”?  In a country where quality food is readily available, Australians should be healthy and fit but current statistics reflect otherwise.  In response to this situation, students will prepare quick, easy and nutritious food items that reflect the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating food model.  Students also produce items using the sewing machines, focusing on decorating using tie-dyeing and screen printing.  In all classes students have a series of both practical and theory lessons in which they follow a design, produce and evaluate process. Students will become proficient in kitchen procedures and textile production in Year 7, 8, 9 and 10. .
