A stained glass window designed by south Norfolk primary school pupils has been unveiled.
The Bishop of Thetford, the Rt Revd Alan Winton, revealed the colourful window at Wreningham VC Primary School on Monday.
It marked the end of a year long project, which saw pupils aged nine to 11 come up with designs for the Noah's Ark themed window.
Rob Jones, head teacher, said: 'We were so lucky to have the right weather - the sun was shining through it and it looked beautiful.
'The children were fantastic and so enthusiastic. One of them said he would bring his children back when he had them. It is part of a legacy now.'

After choosing their design, youngsters spent two days at St Nicholas church in Fundenhall with stained glass artist Teri Lockton in July, where they picked colours and started work on putting the window - which was funded with heritage lottery money - together.

The finishing touches were put together by Mrs Lockton, who offers workshops to adults and children around East Anglia.
Mrs Lockton said: 'I think it was a chance to do something completely different and use material that they are not familiar with. They often get to touch wood and textiles, but to work with glass is quite unique.
'It is a magical medium to work with as it changes by the light.'
It comes as part of an ongoing partnership with the Fundenhall church team.
