Junior Secondary Home Economics

Introduction

Home Economics is one of the subjects in the Technology Education Key Learning Area (TE KLA) at junior secondary level. It comprises major areas of study on food, clothing, home and family which intertwine with the six knowledge contexts proposed in the Technology Education Key Learning Area Curriculum Guide.

Home Economics promotes the well-being of individuals, families and societies through the study of the provision of basic human requirements for food, clothing and effective resources management. The curriculum will provide students with opportunities to understand basic human necessities and to study the well-being of individuals, families and societies, building up their awareness of the various dimensions affecting well-being.
