Welcome to the Home Economics webpage. The department is located on the ground floor of the school in rooms GF066, GF070 and GF086. There is a classroom/textile room and two fully-equipped kitchens. We also have a thriving Herb Garden located in the square outside the department, and are able to source some of our vegetables from the school allotment at Blairadam House. Where possible, we use local seasonal produce, with the majority of our meat supplied by our local QMS butcher, Hunters of Kinross.
There are four teachers in the department:
Mrs C Cairney (PT)
Mrs J Watson (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)
Mrs Hynds (Class Technician)
