Celebrating Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday

Making the pancakes

  Sprinkling the pancakes with sugar

Yesterday, was Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day in Australia. This marks the beginning of the Lenten season in the Christian world. As usual our students in the primary school levels were busy making pancakes – a happy fun time and then enjoyed eating the results of their hard labour.  Below is a video showing our virtual pet, Patch, enjoying part of the action. The photos above are students in grade 5.  What do you do on Shrove Tuesday?
