Prep pupils take part in special Pancake Day races

The race was on for Preparatory School pupils as part of their Pancake Day celebrations.

Both Early Years and Reception classes gathered in the school hall on Tuesday, February 28, where they took part in a number of Pancake Day races.

Pupils were given a frying pan complete with pancake inside and were given the task of completing a course made up in the hall.

They also made their very own signs declaring their love for pancakes, as they cheered their fellow pupils around the track.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “As they do with every activity, the pupils really got into the spirit of things and had a brilliant time in the process.

“Pancakes are always a popular choice on the menu for our pupils, and they definitely worked up an appetite during the races.”

Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the word ‘shrive’, meaning to confess.

It was traditionally a time of introspection, confession and penance for Christians. Now it’s less about penance and more about pancakes.
