 Home Economics
 
Welcome to the Home Economics Department here at Shimna. Home Economics was introduced into the curriculum in 2007 due to the changing economic and social environment.  Home Economics is a very important and exciting subject, which is enjoyed by all.
 
The focus of Home Economics is to encourage and to equip students with the essential skills to lead effective lives as individuals, members of a family and in the wider community.
 
Through theory and practical situations students will be encouraged to think critically, work as a team, make decisions and solve problems. All of which will enable students to improve the quality of their own life and of others.
 
At Key Stage 3 students will concentrate on three main areas
  • Home and Family
  • Independent Living
  • Health Eating 
The course seeks to encourage students to think critically, make informed choices as consumers, develop practical food skills and manage resources.
 
At Key Stage 4, GCSE Home Economics involves students in the study of nutrition, food choice, diet and health within the context of home and family. It encourages knowledge and understanding of current nutritional advice, the nutritional needs of family members throughout the life cycle and of diet-related conditions.
 
2013, seen the arrival of the new Home Economics facilities.  The suite was built on to the back of the canteen, and extends over two storeys.  
 
Home Economics is excellent preparation for careers such as food science, food production, consumer studies, teaching, hospitality, health education, dietician, retail & marketing, and caring professions.
