HOME ECONOMICS | SOCIAL & SCIENTIFIC | Leaving Cert Higher | Full Time | Grinds | Courses

In Hewitt College, Home Economics is a popular option for both our male and female students. The course is divided into two sections; the project, (20%) and the written examination in June. The project is completed in 5th Year which allows our students to focus solely on the written examination in 6th year.

It is a broad and practical course which has a wide range of topics, including home studies, resource management, consumer studies and social studies thus catering for many students. The elective chosen in Hewitt College is Sociology. Note : the elective will not be examined in 2021.

While this subject can be studied in one year, the submission date of early November for the journal is by far the earliest of all the practical projects. Our 5th year students in Hewitt College will have the majority of the project completed in 5th year, which takes great pressure off.

Complementary subjects: Biology, Business, Construction (Home Design elective).
