The St Stephens Express

6th July 2022

All Aboard St Stephens Express!
Today 4 of the classes at St Stephens had the most fantastic enrichment experience completely organised and funded by Launceston Rotary Club. Not only did we get to ride on the steam train at Launceston Steam Railway but the club organised for a fleet of minibuses from St Joseph's School to collect and return us safely. We would like to say the most enormous heartfelt thank you to Dave Shrimpton for leading this fantastic event-the children LOVED it .The funding for our trip was taken from the Charity shop, which would not function without volunteers and the patronage of Launceston people. We can only say thank you again to our local community for enabling this exciting adventure to happen. They have also provided each child who went on the train with a special Jubilee mug that they will be coming home with tomorrow.
A huge thanks also to all the mini bus drivers and our wonderful parent helpers .
