Launching on Monday 27 April 2020…
CALLING ALL WEST RISE CHILDREN!
We know that school life is different at the moment, but you can still compete with the school to be Sussex sporting champions in the Specsavers ‘Virtual’ Sussex School Games 2020.
Take part alongside your friends and teammates from school, win medals, trophies and prizes, and strive to be the very best that you can in this very special, virtual competition.
Each Monday morning during the Summer Term, a new sport will be launched, made up of four physical or technical sporting personal challenges, which can be done from your living room or garden. Challenges may include skills such as: how many times can you bounce the Tennis ball on a racket in one minute, how many star jumps can you do, or football kick ups.
Throughout the week you can practice, train and improve, before submitting your best scores in each challenge on www.sussexschoolgames.co.uk ahead of the Friday deadline (12pm midday). Your score will be added to our school total, meaning that you will be part of the school team, and compete against all of the other schools in the county.
And it doesn’t stop there. There will be trophies in the ‘Active Adults’ category, meaning that big kids (your teachers, parents, carers and family-members) can all get involved and represent our school too.
It all kicks off at 9:15am on Monday 27 April with the ‘Virtual’ Opening Ceremony and launch of the first sport. Get updates, challenges and results direct to your grown ups email inbox by signing up here. (If the link doesn’t work, search Specsavers School Games, and click ‘sign up’ there). You can also check the school’s Facebook page and the class blogs for details about the weekly challenges.
Additionally, you could follow the virtual challenge on social media for a chance to win more prizes and some special surprises:
Practice makes perfect, and to be your very best you are encouraged to train and improve during the week.
Simply upload your training videos and pictures to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, and include the hashtag #SussexSchGames, and a weekly winner will be selected at random, giving you the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher as a prize.

All you need to do for now is ask your grown up to sign up on the Specsavers School Games website and watch out for the challenges every Monday.
