Home Economics Update

We have received further clarification from school regarding HE provision which we thought you would be interested to see:

In S1 Home Economics is running as part of the ACE Fridays curriculum. Pupils work in the department for 3 hours a week for a third of the year (13/14 weeks).  During this time they will undertake a mixture of practical and theoretical tasks, therefore, if a pupils cooks for an ACE Friday morning, they will have done the equivalent of cooking for 3 lessons under the old timetabling arrangement.

In S2, there is a similar arrangement whereby pupils attend Home Economics for a third of the year three times a week, however, in this case the lessons are not on the same day, rather they are spread through the week.
