Morning Radio News @ 9:05 am

Good morning Royal Oak and welcome to the last week of November. After 5 days of collecting warm clothing, and fierce competition between the Green and Blue floor, grade 8 Leadership students have determined the final score for the Warm Clothing Drive. While the Blue Floor held the lead for the majority of the week, the Green floor was never too far behind and stayed in contention going into the final day of the fundraiser on Friday. However, was it a case of too little too late for the Green Floor? The final results for the 2014 Royal Oak Warm Clothing Drive are: The Green Floor 468, and the Blue Floor 348, meaning that Green Floor Classrooms are the champs for this year. A big congratulations to all that helped make this fundraiser a success, bringing in close to 1000 items of warm clothing. It will surely make a positive impact on the Greater Victoria community. Well done Royal Oak!
