And the winner is...

Thank you to everyone who entered our "Name Our Turtle" competition over the last week! We had a fantastic response with well over 50 entries being received from students across the school and even some parents which was great!

The competition was very close with plenty of great names being put forward.  Some notable entries were Bubbles, Webster, Warby and the very popular Franklin being entered several times.  The creativity shown with all the entries was excellent and being around the general buzz of the competition was great fun.  We've had many visitors in our classroom coming to say hello to our new little buddy and plenty of interest in what the winning name is.

But with all the entries given there can still only be one winner and this winner really stood out.  The winning entry showed some creativity and resourcefulness in his entry, using Google to research foreign languages.  He managed to discover that 'Turtle' translates to 'Kobe' in Swahili!! An unbelievable discovery, that fits perfectly to our male or female turtle.  So a big welcome to Kobe our pet turtle!

And an even bigger congratulations to Thomas in Foundation for coming up with the winning entry!  Thomas has won himself VIP tickets to the Grade 1/2 naming ceremony where he will be the special guest at our class party this Friday!
