Morning Radio News @ 9:05 am

Congratulations on a successful Terry Fox event this week ROMS!! We showed great school spirit and also raised a substantial amount of money for the Terry Fox foundation. 

On September 30, wear an orange shirt to honour those who survived Indian Residential Schools (IRS) and remember those that didn't. The motto: Every Child Matters is a reminder that every child, regardless of background, is important, and is a commitment that we will do all we can to ensure students' self-esteem and well -being.

Don't forget it's pizza day tomorrow, and it's $2.50 per slice.


There will be a meeting for all grade 6/7 boys playing on the soccer team at first recess today. All players must attend to discuss our tournament later today at Gordon Head.
