Pupils showcase their torches at sports day
A school in Kingsbury warmed up for the Olympics – by organising a torch parade.
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.
