ROMS TV Announcements


Good afternoon Royal Oak and welcome to the ROMS News stories you have been waiting for.  Today is Thursday, June 8th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane.


Did you know that the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations are celebrating National Aboriginal Day weekend with music, dance, food and the arts and best of all, it's all FREE!  Friday June 16th - Sunday June 18th, 11AM - 5:30PM featuring daily vibrant stage performances, an authentic Indigenous artisan marketplace, storytelling, Aboriginal cuisine and more! Sponsored by the Royal British Columbia Museum.

To learn more visit www.aboriginalbc.com and select EVENTS.


Did you also know that from Wednesday June 21st through Saturday July 1st, you can enjoy 11 days of FREE outdoor events in our beautiful Inner Harbour.  Over 11 days we will commemorate our nation and city’s multicultural artistry, while enjoying diverse food offerings and the grand finale of Main Stage programming and a spectacular firework display on Canada Day, July 1st.  Check out www.spirit150victoria.ca for more information and details.  








1) Today's weather:   Mainly sunny today! Currently it’s 14 degrees out there with a slight chance of rain.  This afternoon, 19 degrees with a with a slightly higher chance of rain.     


2)   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.   


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


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


5)  Finished with your book?  Drop it off in the Learning Commons and help you class win the book return competition!  If you are not sure whether or not you have a book signed out, please visit Mr. Ball or Ms. Rayner to find out.  Your teacher will also be getting a list of all books out.  


6)  End of the Year Library Book Return:  Want an ice cream sundae? 6 more school days until all library books are due for the year.  You are expected to have all your books back by Friday June 16th.  The 1st, 2nd and 3rd class to bring back all of their books - including teachers - win ice-cream sundaes!  Start looking for those books now and speak with Mr. Ball or Mrs. Rayner if you are unable to locate your books.  The earlier you start looking the easier it will be for your class to win.


If you’re wondering why your books are due back so early, well, it has to do with the 15 thousand books we have in the Learning Commons.  Mr. Ball and Ms. Rayner need to make sure that every book is accounted for and this takes a lot of time.  We can help them by making sure we take the time to look for and return our books as soon as possible.


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
