Rooting and Deleting Factory Apps Vodafone Smart II


I have my Vodafone Smart II Routed, I have Superuser and the Terminal Emulator installed, but I cant seem to uninstall most factory apps on the phone. I use this code to get rid of the apps:

su (enter)
mount -o rw,remount /system (enter)
rm -r /system/app/FILENAMEHERE.apk (enter)

When I use this on most apps I get an message saying:

rm -r failed for /system/app/FILENAMEHERE.apk, Read-only file system

Can anyone help me with this? :)
