The Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) invited primary and secondary school pupils to its Wildey headquarters to celebrate Olympic Day.
Olympic Day is celebrated annually around the world in June to promote fitness, well-being, culture and education, as well as the values of excellence, friendship and respect.
Activities this year were partly supported by the Embassy of Japan in Barbados, and had a Japanese theme ahead of next summer's 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The event, titled "Discover Tokyo 2020," treated 240 students from 16 schools to a tour of the BOA Museum and an exhibition of tag rugby, as well as learning traditional Japanese dance and origami.
The Japanese Ambassador to Barbados, Teruhiko Shinada, was present at the event.
On the second day, secondary school students participated in a workshop titled "Learn and Transform - Sport as a Tool for Peace", which was sponsored by UNICEF.
John Jones, a former professional basketballer, was invited to share and inspire student athletes to acknowledge that they have a responsibility to be leaders of change.
The students were required to identify an issue at their school and develop projects to address them.
The proposal presented by the students of the Lodge School was judged to be the best project and will receive financial and administrative support from the BOA.
Director of the National Olympic Academy Vaneisha Cadogan said: "Embracing the Olympic Day focus, 'Move, Learn, Discover', we ensured that we incorporated these three concepts in the activities held during our Olympic Week celebrations.
"The experience was rewarding and inspiring."
