Home Economics

The Home Economics faculty is part of the TAS learning area.

In TAS, students use a range of tools, materials and techniques in the design process and technological experiences through theory and practical lessons.

Through the study of technology courses, students engage in a diverse range of practical experiences and develop knowledge and understanding of contemporary and advancing technologies. They develop solutions to identified problems and situations, and explore the impact of technologies on the individual, society and the environment.
