Family Studies at Bayview Secondary School is a multidisciplinary subject area that encompasses: Food and Nutrition; the role of nutrition in health; the relationship between food and culture; human and family interactions and development; life management skills; various types of relationships and considerations related to raising and caring for children.
In Family Studies courses students learn about laws and policies that affect individuals and families in Canada and around the world. They also become familiar with theoretical perspectives and practical research that underpins our understanding of individual and family development.
All courses in Family Studies encourage students to develop critical and creative thinking skills. Students are given opportunities to deepen their understanding of relevant issues and to develop practical skills, including research and inquiry skills. Students are encouraged to explore a range of perspectives and approaches and to develop the habits of mind that enhance individual and community well-being and contribute to life long learning.
