Pancake Day

The School celebrated Pancake Day on Tuesday 28 February. Students across campus raised funds for Uniting Care by cooking pancakes. 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!

Funds raised at UnitingCare Pancake Day events help provide practical support to disadvantaged people in our community, including the homeless, abused and vulnerable children and adults, the frail and aged, families in crisis and those with disabilities.

Students cooked and served the pancakes before school for breakfast and at recess. 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.
