St Brendan’s Primary School Year 6 students Sophie Cox and Alannah Perry yesterday made pancakes for Shrove Tuesday and to raise money for Caritas Project Compassion Appeal.
Shrove Tuesday marks the traditional feast before Lent, but for a small number of students at St Brendan’s Primary School, it also meant cooking up a storm.
For hours they stood over portable frying pans flipping pancakes — and made enough to feed all 400 students as well as teachers and parents.
Asked how many she had cooked, Sophie Cox replied, ‘‘Too many to count.’’
The students were cooking with pre-mix, which was donated to keep down costs.
Student Alannah Perry rattled off the raw ingredients for perfect pancakes, but took a while to get the hang of cooking.
‘‘At first I didn’t know what to do, but it is quite fun,’’ she said.
Teacher Danae Napier said the cooks were all part of the leadership team at the college.
‘‘They are part of our leadership team and they focus on raising social justice issues, their main role is raising awareness,’’ she said.
As well as raising flour yesterday, the students were raising money for the Caritas Project Compassion Appeal, an annual humanitarian effort to help millions of families across the world who fight for justice, peace and survival every day.
