Home Economics is studied by all pupils during their three years at Tandragee Junior High School. We aim to promote Home Economics as an interesting subject where pupils can enjoy working in theory and practical lessons. Pupils are encouraged to develop skills to enable them to become more independent at school and in the future.They are given opportunities to follow a healthy eating approach to making food choices. They are introduced to the roles and responsibilities of family members and how to make informed choices as consumers and have knowledge of their rights and responsibilities.
September 2008 saw the use a new Home Economics suite including classroom, multipurpose and resource room, providing a bright and stimulating environment for staff and pupils.
Throughout the year we have outside agencies to demonstrate dishes and reinforce previous learning in school.
