Terrick's semester at sea

On Saturday July 14, a former student of the Haley Elementary School ( he now attends the Rogers Middle School), Terrick Beazer left Boston to board the schooner Roseway as part of the Summer Ambassador Program.  This program sends students ages 12-16 to Halifax Nova Scotia for 20 days. While at sea students learn and practice seamanship and navigation.

Terrick was sponsored by Boston Family Boat Building, a BPS partner. Family Boat Building has worked with the Haley Elementary School for 5 years. It looks to expand to other BPS schools in the future.
