Polling Day Results!


We are delighted to announce the result of our vote for a name for our new bunny. All the children present in school today and some staff members voted by secret ballot. Tension was mounting as the day progressed. The total valid poll was 239!  The winning name , with a total of 47 votes, is OREO! This name was suggested by Stephen McCabe (6th Class), Olivia Soosay ( 5th Class) and Lale Bingól (4th Class). Coco was the second choice , suggested by Alison Kelly  and third choice was Cookie, suggested by Marc Ramsbottom.  When we originally went looking for a new rabbit, we decided to see if the L.S.P.C.A. had any rabbits to rehome. They informed us that they had 3 and  we could pick whichever one we liked. We decided on Oreo as he seemed very friendly and we knew he would love our school! We hope he will be with us for many years to come! Click here if you would like to see Oreo with his brothers/sisters before we got him.
