Drew Smith works with local school to name school’s mascot

Congratulations to Poppy at Fairisle Junior School in Southampton for winning our competition to choose the name of our schools mascot.

We worked with the school which is located opposite our Starboard Way development, to come up with a name for the Drew Smith school’s mascot. The school were very creative and students submitted names from “No Idea the newt”, “ Jimmy Newtron” and event “Patricia” and after careful consideration the Drew Smith team chose the name suggested by Poppy – Speckles.

Poppy received some nature at home gifts as a prize as well as some activities for the school to learn about nature. Speckles will be used as part of our school programme which will be launching later this year.

Starboard Way will deliver 103 quality new affordable homes in partnership with Southampton City Council and was also named by the children of Fairisle Junior School.
