To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, an Inter-House Pancake Relay Race took place over an obstacle course around Lower Field today. The event was celebrated at school a week early due to Half-Term.
The event took place to celebrate Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent. Lent is the season in the church’s calendar for a time of fasting, reflection and repentance.
The object of the relay race is to run with a pancake in a pan along the obstacle course, while flipping the pancake at a point along the course, before handing over to the next runner.
There were three races, juniors (Grade 8 and 9), seniors (10 to 12) and an Inter-House ladder relay with one boy from each grade. Houses were assigned points from each of these races.
Overall results (Junior, Senior and Ladder):
1. Armstrong 15 points
2. Espin 14 points
3. Upper 11
4. Graham 11
5. Mullins 8
6. Merriman 4
