The University of Chichester played host to scores of schoolchildren in a mini Olympics.
Organised by the district council and students on a community sports coaching course, the event has been running since 2006.
Year 5 classes from the participating schools are each given a country from around the world to represent. The children learn about their country, cultural differences, sport and the Olympics.
A student coach from the university is placed at the school over an eight-week period to help the classes prepare.
At this year’s event, held over two days, pupils played football, cricket, basketball and a variety of athletic events trying to rack up the most points for their team.
Alex Twitchen, co-organiser, said: “It was really successful - hopefully the kids enjoyed the day. They’ve had a bit of a competition with each other and the other school and everyone has been involved.”
Twitchen led the children in taking the Olympic oath and the coaches’ oath - the same ones taken in the Olympics.
Two of the schools taking part were Downview Primary School and Southbourne Junior School, with two classes from both joining in.
Melanie Hall, a teacher with the Southbourne team, said: “It was a brilliant day. It was lovely for the children to come and have the opportunity to use specialist equipment.
“No-one has been left out and we’d definitely like to do it again.”
Prizes included an overall winners’ medal and an award for sportsmanship.
