A group of Freyberg High School students has created a book to educate children about the environment.
The seven year-13 students created Pio the Whio as part of their young enterprise scheme.
The group consisted of students Dana Purdy, 18, Kellie Gosper, 17, Tasha Picking, 17, Minnika Lawton-Rei, 17, Jack Todd, 17, Rose Hyde, 17, and Anna Fairweather, 17.
As part of the scheme they had to create a product with a community focus. They wanted to focus on the environment because it was so topical.
They had the illustrations done by someone else, but the students wrote the story themselves.
"We all sat down as a group and wanted to create a product for kids and educational purposes about the environment," Gosper said.
Lawton-Rei said they originally wanted to do a colouring book, but decided on a children's book.
