ROMS TV Announcements

Good afternoon Royal Oak!  Here are the News stories you have been waiting for. Today is Tuesday, May 9th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane

Do you know that on Friday May 5th, we had approximately 82% of the school vote during Student Vote BC 2017.  That is about 520 students.  All of our numbers have been calculated and submitted to CIVIX and will be announced on TV along with the rest of the Provincial Student Votes this evening.  A more detailed breakdown for ROMS will be made public tomorrow (Wednesday).  What a great turnout!

Did you also know that some classes will integrating the voting data that we calculated into their Math class and will be displaying graphs on the hallway TV?  

Did you also know that 79% of the votes that we did collect were all done so during block 3.  There was very little turnout in block 1.  When asked why no one was showing up, we were told that it was because we hadn’t seen the final candidate presentation yet.  Way to go ROMS!  Wanting to be more informed before voting is exactly the aim of Student Votes.  Give yourself a pat on the back!

1) Today's weather:  A beautiful day expected today.  Currently the temperature is sitting at 9 degrees with a 20% chance of precipitation.  This afternoon the temperature hopefully moves up to 15 degrees with a 20% chance of precipitation.

2) Health Facts:  Around 80% of what we think is taste is actually smell.  Flavour, is combination of taste and smell perception.  Test this yourself by holding your nose closed the next time you eat something, can you taste it very well?  Chances are you can’t.

3)   There are a lot of school events starting up.  Be sure to listen to the morning announcements to see where you might get involved in your school.   

4)  Keep up your recycling.  Recycling reduces the amount of garbage we send to our landfill.  

5)  Pizza day and chocolate milk is this Friday.   You have to love pizza!!

6) And for today’s Teaser:

Triplets (Jane, Tayonie, and Tiffany) were born in August but their birthday is in December.

how can this be true?

Answer:  August is a town!  

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

Thanks for making ROMS TV your #1  station! If it is happening, it is happening here on 751 TV
