On Tuesday the 25th of February, Bethany College held a Shrove Tuesday breakfast feast consisting of fresh pancakes and delicious toppings. This event was organised to kick start the Lenten season and begin raising money for Caritas.
Many teachers and Year 12 students sacrificed a few hours of their beauty sleep, to cook and serve pancakes to the whole school. For only a gold coin donation, students and staff were able to purchase a large serving of pancakes with whatever topping they desired. We are extremely excited to say that the pancakes were a big hit and that by 8:30, they were sold out!
The morning atmosphere was very festive thanks to DJ Desh (Year 12) and her party tunes. The air was filled with laughs, singing and a real sense of community. Students gave very generously to Project Compassion, motivated by the season of almsgiving and of course, the irresistible scent of pancakes, raising $370 to begin our season of giving.
A big thank you to Mr Laguzza and the Religious Education Team for organising this event and to the teachers and Year 12 students who helped make the magic happen.
