These great snaps come courtesy of Newmarket School in Auckland, New Zealand. They were so inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Games, they decided to hold their own event in their own school grounds!
Teacher Sonya van Schaijik told BBC World Class: "The focus of the day was to highlight the Olympics and for the children to learn a little bit about the country that they were competing for." Having been split into 10 country teams, the pupils wait for the contest to begin in the bright winter sunshine.
Each team wore appropriate colours, redesigned their flag and created a team chant that showed their team spirit. Here, Team China get in the mood...
... to throw some gumboots. Gumboot-throwing is a traditional New Zealand sport, and reflects the country's significant agricultural output, which is recognised worldwide. See if you can spot the boot in this shot.
The New Zealand island of Taihape claims to be the centre of gumboot throwing, holding an annual 'Gumboot Day'. (Incidentally, the British cousin of this event is The World Welly Wanging Championships, held every year in Upperthong, Holmfirth.)
Team Brazil get into the swing of things
Yoo Ess Ay! Yoo Ess Ay!
BBC World Class were unaware that the conga is an Olympic event. Looks like fun.
Two medallists proudly display their prizes. Sonya van Schaijik said: "The children had an exciting and enjoyable day. Being the middle of winter proved challenging as the grounds were muddy but that did not stop us participating in true Olympic spirit."
