An ethos of local partnership
The University of Chichester Academy Trust shares the belief of the University itself that education has the power to transform society. Stamshaw Junior School is firmly rooted in its locality and encourages the involvement and interest of parents and the community, recognising that strong and vibrant communities have partnership and inclusion at their heart.
I make jumping look easy! 7.46m indoors in Bratislava, 7.75m at the Aviva European Indoor Trials and UK Championships! I was always an athletic teenager, geared towards sports and fitness, but it was an accident when I ended up discovering an innate talent for the long jump. My first love had always been football, until I incurred an injury that took me away from the sport, and I took to the athletics track looking for a new passion to sink my teeth into. I was led through a variety of sports, until an instructor directed me to the long jump because of my height as I was almost six feet tall already! Immediately, I was enthralled with the sport, and my training schedule spiralled from there, and that took me into National Competitions.
I achieved my first medal in 2005 as the Bronze medallist for the England Indoor Championships, and my second shortly afterwards in that same year – a Gold this time! – as the England International Junior Debut. Rolling for a hat trick, I finished off my winning streak with another International title, the Under 20’s Home Nations International Winner. I took a short break before starting another intense training schedule for Senior Competitions in 2007. The following Summer, my training paid off with yet another Gold International Debut Medal, this time in Austria, and a Silver for the England Under 23 Indoor Competitions. 2009 brought further medals and titles for me in National competitions, and I began to steadily climb the British Rankings. This led me to my title in 2011 as the UK Indoor Senior Champion, and my GB debut in September 2011, where I was placed third in competitions against USA.
I then decided to go back to my roots and began training to represent Nigeria at the All African finals.
Who are we?
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Stamshaw Junior School and the local community is running a fundraiser to support the school to replenish their budgets hard hit by Covid-19 and the lockdown.
Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.
While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!
SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.
During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.
Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.
Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.
Stamshaw Junior School is receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Ezekiel Ewulo on the 11th of December and we need your support!
The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.
Why is this important?
Stamshaw Junior School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdown and with the help of a visit from Ezekiel Ewulo the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.
Stamshaw Junior School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.
How can you help?
We're asking all parents to donate £20 to help cover the cost of getting Ezekiel Ewulo to Stamshaw Junior School.
