Home Economics - Middle School

This year in the Middle School Home Economics’ program we are working on the theme “What’s for Dinner?”

 

Through the production of low cost meals students will develop skills in the safe and hygienic preparation and storage of food.

 

Seasonal fruit and vegetables will be used in all of our recipes.

 

Whenever possible, we source vegetables and herbs from the garden as sustainability is an increasing focus of the program.

 

All students participate in the cooking and cleaning up process either as an individual or as a member of a team.

 

Students are expected to taste the dishes to broaden their experiences and to have an opinion even if the food is not to their liking.

 

A positive attitude to healthy eating and nutrition is encouraged as we reflect on the importance of healthy eating for their physical, social and emotional health.
