Home Economics seeks to develop in Loreto students a sense of personal responsibility for their own life, to provide them with the knowledge, understanding and practical skills to make informed decisions for the world beyond school and to allow them to see the relevance of health education in their daily lives and in the lives of others. It is an excellent preparation for various careers such as Food science, Food production, Consumer Studies, Teaching, Health education, Dietician, Retail & Marketing, Consumer advice, Personnel Management, Health care & for life in general!
