To celebrate the beginning of Lent, we held Mardi Gras celebrations on Shrove/Pancake Tuesday. Children came dressed in Green, Purple and Gold which represent faith, justice and power respectively. During the day children took part in a range of activities which involved pancake racing and learning more about the traditions that surround Mardi Gras. On Wednesday, the children then attended mass to receive ashes on their forehead as a sign of their faith to signify Ash Wednesday.
