Specsavers 'Virtual' Sussex Games competition 2020
This is completely optional, and only a little bit of fun with some competition thrown in too!
Dear Pupils, Parents and Carers,
As you may have already seen advertised in our local paper, there is a new schools sports competition starting this week.
At 9.15am on Monday 27 April, the ‘Virtual’ Opening Ceremony took place on social media for the Specsavers ‘Virtual’ Sussex School Games. It starts a term of sporting challenges giving children across Sussex the chance to represent their schools alongside their friends and classmates, and compete to be Sussex champions.
Every week throughout the summer term, a different sport will take place, made up of four personal sporting challenges which can be completed from home, garden or at school. The games were initially designed for KS2, but all children can have a go whatever their age.
Your scores for each challenge will be submitted online, and will contribute towards St Catherine's College average score.
Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to the best scoring schools in each sport. There will also be an Active Adults category with trophies up for grabs, so parents, teachers and carers can get involved and represent St Catherine's College as well.
As well as medals in individual sports, overall leader boards will be kept, and overall Sussex Champions crowned at the end of the summer term.
At 9.30am on a Monday morning, a new sport, and it’s four challenges, will be published on www.sussexschoolgames.co.uk, on social media, and sent directly to those signed up to the mailing list. So please sign up.
Practice makes perfect, so participants are encouraged to train and improve each week to be the best that they can be. As a bit of extra-motivation, each Monday they will be setting a new training challenge alongside the sporting competition, with the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher as a prize.
Participants simply need to upload their training videos and pictures to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, and include the hashtag #SussexSchGames, and a weekly winner will be selected at random.

Please sign up, get training, stay fit and healthy and let’s see how well we can do as a school.
Good luck with the challenges.
