On Monday and Tuesday, 35 5th graders from the Harvard Kent School in Charlestown took a trip to Gloucester to see Roseway out of the water at the Gloucester Marine Railway Shipyard. They took a tour of the shipyard and learned about the repairs that are taking place. They then headed over to Maritime Gloucester to tour and learn about Roseway's sister ship, schooner Adventure and explore the touch tank aquarium at the Maritime center.
All of these 5th graders sailed on Roseway the prior school year and they loved seeing Roseway again, under these different conditions. These students also work with Community Boat Building to use their science and math skills to build a row boat during the school year. We look forward to seeing 5th graders from the Haley Pilot School on Friday and Monday of next week up in Gloucester!
