Recycled CDs and tyres are not your typical pieces of art.
But a mural created from everyday household goods by schoolchildren has won a national competition.
Marlborough First and Middle School, in Marlborough Hill, won the
Charlie and Lola's Look After Your Planet competition, run by Puffin books, after creating a mural for the primary school playground.
As part of their prize the school won a £1,000 green makeover, and Guardian journalist Leo Hickman went round the school to give them his top tips on becoming green last Wednesday.
Deputy head Gill Ross said: "Each and every child had a go at putting something towards the mural.
"It is based on the sea, and the CDs were used to make the scales on the fish.
"It was a lot of work getting 470 children to do this, but they were very excited about it."
The competition was themed around children's BBC cartoon characters Charlie and Lola, and the school is hoping to use the money to build a garden.
The idea for the mural, which took more than two weeks to create, came from an art week hosted in 2007 by the art coordinator, Tina Gravestock, and eco-school leader Cathy Lee.
Pupils have also formed a team of 20 eco-warriors to help spread environmentally friendly tips throughout the school.
