Pupils Kingsbury Green Primary School in Old Kenton Lane, Kingsbury, entered a competition to make the best torch before parading them in front of parents, governors and the Mayor of Brent last Thursday morning.
Students also made pledges to play fairly, with passion and to demonstrate sportsmanship.
The day follows news that the school has been awarded for their commitment towards the Olympic values of friendship, excellence and respect.
