A different kind of education

This morning I spoke at the Home Economics Institute Australia (WA) seminar for teachers of Children Family and Community, which supports education and advocacy for households in everyday living.

Home economics is a valuable subject for people of all ages, but especially young people transitioning into adulthood.

Whether it is developing independent living skills or learning to support a family, home economics can arm young people with the knowledge to make better informed choices and decisions in their everyday lives.

I was glad to have the opportunity to speak at this morning’s seminar where I outlined the role of my office and some of our related projects and initiatives.

It is always a pleasure and very useful to have discussions with committed professionals who are similarly committed to empowering children and young people and building a positive future for our community.

I would like to thank everyone involved, especially Lyn Dymond, President HEIAWA and Jennifer Wheatley, Principal Consultant SCSA.
