Celebration of Shrove Tuesday
On Tuesday 21 February Rosmini staff and students recognised Shrove Tuesday at school, a day traditionally celebrated by cooking pancakes.
The history of this tradition is that Anglo-Saxon Christians would enjoy their final indulgence, and at the same time clear their pantries before Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of Lent and 40 days of fasting before Easter. The word "shrove" comes from "shrive", and Anglo-Saxon Christians would go to confession and they were “shriven” (absolved from their sins.)
Thank you to Rosmini's Catholic Character leaders who donned their aprons before school and served teachers fresh coffee and delicious pancakes with toppings.
