WSW Wolverines

West Sussex West Wolverines

The West Sussex West School Sport Partnership (WSW SSP) support school sport at all levels of competition from in school, school v school to county finals at both primary and secondary level. The organisation take a lead on the “School Games” for the area. The School Games is a government initiative to get more children active using competition as the drive. It aims to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools and provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best. The School Games was introduced as part of the London 2012 legacy, and hasn’t disappointed, with millions of children accessing it annually across the country.

The School Games is funded by Sport England and driven by the Youth Sport Trust. Sussex, however, have taken the School Games to the next level by finding a local sponsor in “Specsavers”.  As well contributing to a variety of elements to the main event, their sponsorship allows every athlete reaching the “Specsavers Sussex Finals” to receive a t-shirt.

Sussex decided to “jazz up” the areas by taking the ethos of the American football teams and giving each area a new identity when competing in the School Games. Very much in the way that when Sussex Cricket compete in the twenty20, they become the Sussex Sharks. The West Sussex West created a Primary School mascot design and area name competition. Following over a hundred entries we had combined winners. Florence Ingram and Lucia McGurk from Jessie Younghusband, who came up with the “West Sussex West Wolverines” and designed the Mascot. The WSW SSP had the design created into a mascot teddy that will now attend events. Deputy Headtecher and PE co-ordinator Paul Neaves has been driving PE and School Sport with huge success leading to “Gold School Games Mark” status. Now. with thanks to the girls, Jessie Younghusband have another framed certificate for the trophy cabinet with a mini mascot for the girls/school to keep.

Sean O’Connor, WSW SSP Manager commented: “It was fantastic to be able to use the power of sport to support other valuable skills, with the creativity and artistic qualities being used by all the mascot competition entries. Having so many entries made it a difficult choice but the girls from Jessie Younghusband were worthy winners. I look forward to bringing the Wolverine to events for participants to see”

Our local Specsavers will soon have info in the stores regarding our area’s success in current competitions, with photos from events. Our distinct area colour purple will hopefully be noticed across the Bognor/Chichester area with surprise visits popping up from the Wolverine.
