St Andrew's College: Inter-House Pancake Relay

The annual St Andrew’s College Inter-House Pancake Relay Race was held in hot and humid conditions on the late afternoon of Shrove Tuesday 28 February. College boys packed out the grass banks of the Upper lawns to support their House relay teams. A relay team consisting of five boys (one from each grade) represented each House.

The object of the relay race is to run with a pancake in a pan along the set course, whilst flipping the pancake at four points along the course, before handing over to the next runner. The race was eagerly contested and in the end Upper House just pipped defending champions, Merriman House, overtaking them on the final straight.

A most enjoyable time was had by all. Congratulations to the Upper House team of Lilitha Lubengu, Jonathan Shamwana, Ryan Ford, Peter Jarvis and Zadok Makane.
