Inter-House Pancake Race for Prep
03 March 2017
Having heard about the origins and traditions of Shrove Tuesday from Year 5 in assembly, all girls from Year 1 – 6 gathered in the Octagon to take part in the annual Inter-House pancake race. This competition is fiercely contested and causes much excitement.
The girls took part against their peer groups, tossing the pancakes for the number of times to match their year group. The event began with Year 6 demonstrating to the younger girls how the competition would run. Everyone quickly became experts by careful observation of the best techniques.
Cheered on by their Housemates everyone tried their best and the final results saw a tie between Frank and Johnson.
Well done to everyone!
