ROMS TV Announcements

Good afternoon Royal Oak!  Here are the News stories you have been waiting for.  Today is Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane

Do you know that you can take a selfie of yourself in front of an “I Voted” poster that is located outside of the Learning Commons?  If you did in fact vote on Friday, feel free to jump in front of  this poster as an individual or a group.  

Did you also know: More than 170 000 elementary, middle and high school students participated in the Student Votes program for the 2017 BC Provincial Election.  After learning about the electoral process, researching the parties and platforms, and debating the future of BC, students cast ballots for the official candidates running in their local electoral district.  Here at ROMS we were lucky to have met 4 of the 5 candidates for Saanich South.

As of 4:15 pm yesterday afternoon, 1 092 schools had reported their election results, representing all 87 electoral districts in the province.  In total, 170 238 ballots were cast by student participants; 163 923 valid votes and 6 315 rejected/spoiled votes.  

In the Student Vote results, the NDP forms government with 60 seats.  The Green Party forms the Official Opposition with 14 and the Liberal win 12.  One independent candidate was elected.


Example:  Graphs are on the desktop

Now for ROMS Results: Note:  a more detailed breakdown by hallway will be created by some of our math classes and will be presented soon.  

-Green: 245 39%

-NDP: 188 30%

-Liberal: 49 8%

-Libertarian: 9 1%

-VIP 9 1%

-Total Valid Ballots: 500

-Total Spoiled Ballots: 20


(Announcers:  See Mr. Ball regarding “I Voted” selfie poster.)

1) Today's weather:  A beautiful day expected today.  Currently the temperature is sitting at 12 degrees with a 30% chance of precipitation.  This afternoon the temperature hopefully moves up to 16 degrees with a 30% chance of precipitation.  But then again, this is Victoria, you just never know what will happen out there!

2) Health Facts: Found in humans and most animals, blood is an incredibly important bodily fluid that transports oxygen and various nutrients to our body's cells.  Red blood cell have the important job of carrying oxygen around the body.  They also contain a protein called hemoglobin.  Hemoglobin contains iron which combines with oxygen to give hemoglobin and our blood, a red colour.  

White blood cells are an important part of the body’s immune system.  They defend against certain bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, infectious diseases and other unwanted materials.

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:

The more it dries, the wetter it gets.  What is it?

Answer:  A towel!
