Harpenden pupils made dresses for girls living in poverty as part of an international campaign.
A class of Year 9 pupils at St George's School in Sun Lane took part in the 'Dress a Girl Around the World' campaign, which provides dresses for girls living in developing countries.
Overseen by textiles teacher Ewa Cantwell, the pupils were "immensely proud of their finished products". The production of the dresses was a step up from their usual projects, testing and stretching their skills.
The dresses will now be delivered to Sierra Leone by parent Sarah Hope.
Headteacher Helen Barton said: "I am very proud of what these pupils have achieved. They have truly gone above and beyond, showing care and compassion for those less fortunate than themselves.
"A mammoth task in their production, with lots of fun along the way, so a well-earned pat on the back."
