Pancake Day and Dumplings

Traditionally, Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday and the last day to eat all the luxury foods in the pantry before the start of Lent in the lead up to Easter. These foods included flour, eggs and dairy products which, when combined make delicious pancakes!

This year Pancake Day was held on Tuesday 9 February. Students across campus raised funds by cooking pancakes and in honour of Chinese New Year students also sold delicious dumplings.

It was wonderful to see so many students involved and a big thank you to the Charities Committee for organising the event. Funds from pancake sales and donations will go directly to local agencies to help them provide practical support to Australians in need.
