The central focus of home economics education is the well being of people within the context of their personal, family, community and work roles. Home Economics education is about becoming independent, connecting with others and taking action towards preferred futures that support individual and family well being. Students bring together practical and cognitive capabilities and address increasingly complex challenges related to everyday living — for example, those challenges related to human development and relationships, food, textiles and shelter and their impact on physical, social and emotional health. Through their studies, students become empowered, active and informed members of society. Home Economics education plays a major role in supporting young people to participate effectively in changing social, cultural and economic times.

At Ashdale Secondary College all Year 7 and 8 students will study a set course in Home Economics. In Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 they have the option to study a variety of Home Economics courses.
