Home Ec Grinds: Leaving Certificate 2018
Taught by our experienced and skilled teachers in modern, well equipped labs, this 6 week course covers the practical (cookery) requirements of the Leaving Certificate Home Economics course. Writing up the student journals will also be covered as part of these Home Ec grinds. These classes can be combined with the Home Economics theory classes that also take place on Saturday mornings.
The Home Economics Practicals Course covers the practical coursework element of the Leaving Certificate Home Economics Syllabus, which is worth 20% of the Home Economics Leaving Certificate grade.
Students will cook four dishes (Week 2-5) that meet the requirements of the Food Studies Assignments 2017. All cookery practicals will be supervised by a Home Economics teacher, in keeping with the guidelines set out by the Department of Education.
Please note: Classes do not take place during Halloween Mid-Term break and Christmas holidays.

Q: Can I be admitted to class without my card?
A: NO CARD, NO CLASS. It is every student’s personal responsibility to ensure they have their card with them each time they attend classes at the Institute. We have the right to refuse admission to any student who does not comply with this regulation. A day pass costs €10. A replacement card costs €20.
Q: Are the classes conducted ‘lecture style’ or are students free to ask questions?
A: Our teachers are very approachable and students are free to ask questions.
Q: My son/daughter is unwell and cannot attend. Can I have a refund?
A: No, there are no refunds. However, if you return the student’s admission card to us immediately, along with a short letter of explanation, at the discretion of management, a credit note can be put on the student’s file for future use or for use by a sibling.
Q: My son/daughter cannot attended the course. Can we buy the notes?

A: Yes, however you must deal directly with your teacher in relation to this.
