Food and fibre: Years 9 and 10

Explore content

In Years 9 and 10, students further develop their ability to explore social and environmental issues, widening from local to national, regional and global contexts. Students explore patterns and systems to move to the complex ideas of form and function, equilibrium and interdependence in the physical and natural world.

They are engaged in investigative methods that promote the making and systematic testing of simple hypotheses about phenomena, issues and challenges. As they reflect on their own and others’ actions, values and attitudes, students develop and apply ethical thinking skills to real and proposed decisions and actions.

In Years 9 and 10, students may elect to study a food and fibre related subject either by selecting a local course or by designing and producing designed solutions in Design and Technologies for the food and fibre production technologies context. Students identify and establish safety procedures that minimise risk, and manage projects with safety and efficiency in mind, maintaining safety standards and management procedures to ensure success.
