St Albans students have been damming their drips and plugging their leaks as part of a water saving competition.
The Beaumont School pupils were declared overall winners at the Challenge:Water contest run by Affinity Water.
Students raised over £1,300 for the WaterAid charity.
They spent five months organising a water saving and education campaign, fund raising and improving the accessibility of the VIP latrine, a toilet installed globally by WaterAid.
Head teacher Martin Atkinson said: "I am really delighted with the success of our students seeing the fruition of all their hard work and also very grateful for the excellent work of Dr Jones [the organising teacher] in putting the team together. The challenge provided an excellent opportunity to enrich their educational experience."
