A Flipping Good Time at Annual Pancake Race

The College celebrated Shrove Tuesday in the time-honoured tradition this week with a series of pancake races around Chapel triangle. The school community turned out to support the runners in the annual Inter-House competition, now in its 16th year. The onlookers cheered their favourites on, creating a fabulous carnival atmosphere in chilly conditions.

Teams of three runners from each House completed a leg of the triangle, flipping their pancakes as they went and handing the frying pan on to a teammate at each corner.

When the final scores were tallied, the overall results were announced:
