We need some helping hands to make sure this year's Shrove Tuesday Pancake Day runs smoothly. Please consider signing-up to help. Thank you in advance!

As we prepare to enter the season of Lent (Ash Wednesday to Good Friday), the penitential period before Easter, School Council will host the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Day on Tuesday, February 13th in the gym. Students, teachers, and staff will be served a pancake lunch consisting of pancakes, sausages, and juice. If your child(ren) have healthy appetites, please pack them extra snacks.
Shrove Tuesday is a day for celebrating before we enter the Lenten season of fasting and prayers. People traditionally cleared their cupboards of goods such as sugar, fats and eggs before Lent.
