S1 – S3 Pupils

In Home Economics our CFE focus is:

Food and Health

Through range of practical activities pupils learn about good food choices with the aim of understanding diet and, hopefully, develop lifelong healthy eating habits.

Pupils learn how culture, advertising, the media, religious belief and sustainability can affect their food choice.

They  also learn how technological developments can influence their choice of food.

In addition, pupils develop technological skills in the Junior phase.

Gain skills and confidence
