Students from St Mary's Church of England Primary School in Kent pose for World Class! They are twinned with the old schools of UK swimmer Achieng Ajulu-Bushell, who was born in the UK but spent much of her childhood in Kenya - hence the Kenyan flag.
This letter is from Mercy, a student at Bishop Okiring in Kenya. As part of a Citizenship project looking at global issues, students at Bedford Academy, UK, sent letters to their BBC World Class partner school asking for a response on various topics.
English is the third language of Bishop Okiring students, but the letters nevertheless tackle hard-hitting topics such as poverty and HIV. In this letter, author Eglah lists his dicussion group members at the top.
A couple of snaps now from Bradford Grammar School, UK, who are really gearing up for the Games. On the left, Junior School pupils stage a World Class assembly with an Olympic Torch flavour. And upper school student Jordan (right) will be performing in the Olympic and Paralympic closing ceremonies alongside the Rolling Stones!
Located on Unst in the Shetland Isles, Baltasound Junior High School boasts several international school links. In addition to their Olympic Dreams Network partnership with Blair Academy in the USA, the school also have ties to institutions in Ghana and Norway. To commemorate these links, Baltasound held a torch-led procession - and their three school houses, normally named after the islands around Unst, were named after each nation for the day
At a pause in the procession, the students split into their three house groups. The torch (right of picture) was borrowed from the Up Helly Aa fire festival, held every January in the Shetlands
In April 2012, Rekha Slatter and Derek Peaple, representing Edlesborough Primary and Park House School respectively, made an 8,500-mile round trip to their partner school in Mongolia, School #79. The Mongolian school was attended by boxer Enkhbatyn Badar-Uugan, and the schools were bought together thanks to his involvement in the BBC's World Olympic Dreams project. Here, Derek (second left) and Rekha (second right) get to meet Bader-Uugan himself (far right), at the Mongolian Olympic headquarters
Derek and Rekha share a joke with Enkhbatyn Badar-Uugan at the Mongolian Olympic HQ
Students from Bedford Academy pose with Shadrack Kosgei (yellow top) and Philip Langat (black top). The two Kenyan athletes helped to set the pace for the elite male runners in the London Marathon, before heading to Bedford to take part in the 'Run with the Kenyans' project. The run was a reward for students who had managed the full marathon distance of 26.2 miles themselves, by running in increments over the previous weeks. We think it's probably fair to say the Kenyans appreciated the slower pace
14 starstruck students from Fairlands Middle School in Somerset pose here with four of Russia's hottest medal prospects for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The pupils grilled the athletes in an hour-long interview, before getting some autographs over lunch. The athletes stand at the back, from left to right: Dinara Safina (tennis), Maria Kiseleva (syncronised swimming), Buvaisar Saytiev (free-style wrestling), Svetlana Masterkova (gymnastics)
