ROMS TV Announcements

Good afternoon Royal Oak! Here are the News stories you have been waiting for.  Today is Monday, February 27 and here is what is happening at  751 News! .

Do you know all the blinking in one day equates to having your eyes closed for 30 minutes

Did you also  the Grand Canyon can hold around 900 trillion footballs

1) Today's weather calls for cloudy skies and a high of 4 degrees.  YES!  The forecast tells us that we will have rain clouds tomorrow with a temperature of 7degrees.   

2) Health Fact:

Kids aged between 5 and 17 years need at least 60 minutes a day of moderate and vigorous activity.  It’s even better to be active for up to three hours each day.

Moderate physical activity includes brisk walking, bike riding, skateboarding and dancing. Vigorous activities are ones which make you ‘huff and puff’, like running and playing games like basketball and football.

3)  Grade 8’s!  The Yearbook team still wants your baby photo!   Email your photo to Ms. C

4)  The World Famous Royal Oak Talent show will be March 3   That’s this Friday!

5)  Grade 8’s - reminder that you will be going to Claremont tomorrow to tour the school.  Please load buses at 1 pm.

6)  Reminder to the Archery Club that you go to SCP every Thursday.

8)  For the Gr 8 students and parents, the Claremont Counsellors will be Thursday to meet with parents.  If you or your parents have questions, you need to book into this at the office.

7) And for today’s joke of the day:

Q: What gets wetter the more it dries?       A: A towel.

That concludes our TV news cast! Please join us tomorrow for further breaking news stories here on 751 News!
