Welcome to Home Economics

  • Home Economics focuses on the inter-relationships between diet, health, family, resources and home, and man’s physical, economic, social and aesthetic needs.

    Hence, the central concern is the optimal quality of life of individuals and family; it recognizes the family as the most important influence in the nurture, care and education of its members.

    Through the goal-setting of empowering individuals, strengthening families and enabling communities, Home Economics aims to help students to lead effective lives, not only as individuals, but also, as members of a family and the community, within the context of a culturally, socially and economically diverse society.

    Overall, Home Economics encompasses the learning and mastery of knowledge and skills which enable students to develop and maintain lifelong healthful behaviours, become productive citizens and adapt to a rapidly changing world.
