Youngsters at a village school will be able to stay out of the sun thanks to a the creative talents of a nine-year-old girl.
Hannah Galey, from Buxton Primary School, won a national school T-shirt design competition encouraging sun safety.
Her unique design was a penguin wearing sunglasses and a simple message telling people to wear suntan lotion.
The prize was a wooden sun shelter which has been put up in the front playground.
Headteacher Deborah Leahy said: 'We are immensely proud of her. She did very well to come up with such an original design. It is so simple but it is wonderful. Hannah was quite surprised. It is absolutely vital to promote sun safety.'

About 210 primary schools in the country entered and all 136 Buxton primary pupils were given two days to come up with a design at the end of May.
To celebrate the win, all of the students at the school wore Hannah's T-shirt for a day yesterday (Thursday).
As well as the sun shelter the school received suntan lotion dispensers.
Rachael Powley, year two teacher, said: 'The sun shelter helps us with our ethos of being a Forest School. We want to promote being safe outside.'
