Junior School
We offer an introductory course to basic cooking and healthy eating.

Food impacts on every aspect of life, from meeting essential functional needs of the body, to celebrating significant events in a person’s life.  It can affect your mood, thinking and ability to focus and learn.

Clontarf Aboriginal College offers a range of Food Science and Technology Courses to the students.  The focus of the course is about building confidence in the kitchen.  Students learn about basic nutrition, food safety and quality.  Students learn about meal planning, adapting recipes and cooking methods for personal as well as the needs of a family.

In the senior years, there is a more professional focus, we will learn about occupational safety and health requirements, safe food handling practices, and a variety of food preparation techniques.  This course may enhance employability and career opportunities in areas that include nutrition, health, food and beverage manufacturing, food processing, community services, hospitality and retail.

The aim of the Food Science Department is to provide practical and theoretical knowledge to assist our students in living a healthy life in the future; “You are what you eat” is a constant theme in our teaching.
