History was made on Monday morning, March 7th 2022, when Rice College officially opened a new state of the art Home Economics room.
Following years of fundraising by current and past Parents’ Associations, the school is at long last in a position to offer Home Economics as a Junior Cycle subject to the current First Years. A Home Economics teacher, Ms. Meagan Bourke, was appointed last summer and a conversion of an existing classroom into a custom designed practical room with 10 stations, disability access and high spec fixtures and fittings took place.
