In Home Economics, students learn both the theoretical understandings and practical applications related to food and nutrition, relationships, living environments and textiles. While Home Economics is part of the HPE Faculty within the school, content in this subject is drawn from the key learning areas of Health and Physical Education, Technology, and Studies of Society and Environment.

Many of the learning experiences embedded in Home Economics are practical-based, whether that be working with different textiles, or working with food in the kitchen. Due to the cost of ingredients and materials consumed, there is a modest fee charged for each unit studied.

While each unit is largely based around practical work, there is also a significant theoretical aspect, related to the practical activities.
