About 300 St Theresa’s School pupils were divided into 16 teams, each one representing a different country.
They competed in several modified sports, including the popular sock wrestling, indoor hockey and sailing.
Teachers took part in a entertaining equestrian competition using stick horses.
Principal Julian Ineson said the Olympics shared similar values with the school.
‘‘Throughout the day, the school values of respect, courage and perseverance were encouraged.
‘‘The opportunity to host such an event allowed for classes to connect further with the Tokyo event and to support and encourage each other in a fun day while being physically active.’’
One pupil, Brazilian national Maria Cruz wore the yellow and green of her home country but was representing Australia at the Games.
The change did not dampen her spirits.
‘‘Any country is cool.
‘‘The best thing is to dress up and to have a fun day with all the school friends.’’
