Shrove Tuesday was celebrated with colour, speed and hilarity as the Preppies tried to sprint in House teams, and flip pancakes at the same time. The cheering allowed for no slackening of pace, and corner negotiations became problematic for some of our boys.
The Junior Preppies had a ball. They dutifully lined up and raced around their challenging course, flipping their pancakes in earnest and collecting grass and sand along with the ones that fell out of the pans.
The Pre-Primary children – well, they trotted along, just trying to see that they were going around the correct cones and rescuing the pancakes that kept escaping here and there. The children all thoroughly enjoyed their hot pancakes afterward, sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon.
