Home Economics

Home Economics includes cooking, sewing and crafts.

In early 2010 the new Home Economic Centre was opened. The kitchen has been designed to teach both domestic and a commercial cookery and each year has hosted a Certificate 1 in Hospitality (Kitchen Operations) as part of the Pichi Richi Trade Training Centre

The cooking component of Home Economics involves learning a variety of skills to prepare, cook and serve food. Students learn to use utensils safely as well as the art of combining ingredients to produce delicious dishes.

Students from Reception to Year 9 are involved in cooking classes each week. These are a rewarding experience as students cook something delicious to eat and share. This learning experience has been further strengthened by the use of fresh produce from the school garden ( Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. )
