Pupils celebrated their school's centenary by designing a new set of railings telling its story in steel.
Fakenham Junior School commissioned north Norfolk-based artist Kate Munro to produce a work to commemorate the occasion.
The brief was something physical, which would be long-lasting, so she suggested they replace their rusty, century-old iron railings.
'I came into the school every week for a term and worked with every class,' she said. 'They did masses of drawings and cut-outs, all to do with the history of the school.'
Ms Munro finished up with enough designs for more than 40 panels - enough to run along the entire Queens Road frontage of the school.

Before the official ribbon cutting by youngsters, head Lesley Cook paid tribute to Dawn Fairbrother, the 275-pupil school's community learning co-ordinator, who was the main driving force behind the project.
She thanked historians Mike Bridges and Jim Baldwin, for their help with research and architect David Logan, who helped finalise the design and obtain planning permission.
