First Year Home Economics Recycling Projects

Well done to all the first year Home Economics students on their beautiful creations. They were made using old materials that they had at home. The idea was to create an item using waste materials at home and create a new useful item. This item could be practical or decorative. This topic is part of the topic “Sustainable Living” where students look at our impact on the environment and how to reduce the amount of waste we produced. All the teachers and SNAs in the HE department were so impressed with all the hard work shown in the projects. It was also lovely to hear how students came up with their ideas and see the item at our online “Show & Tell” classes before the February break.


We have attached some photos of the first year projects to inspire others. This project also ties in directly with Global Goal 12. These are only a selection of the wonderful projects done at home. Well done to all!

Home Economics

May 2020

In Home Economics class, the emphasis is usually on making healthy choices. However, by all standards, this has been an unusual school year. It was decided that to celebrate the summer holidays, students would make some delicious sweet treats at home and send in photos of their creations. As you can see, the results were amazing! Well done to all and have a great summer.

Take care,

Mrs.Cooney and Ms.Hegarty
