Art work created by students at Epping Forest College formed the backdrop to Loughton Town Council's Civic Celebration event at The Murray Hall on Sunday.
The event, organised by Town Mayor Philip Abraham, was based on the theme of celebration: 'No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted'.
This is one of Aesop’s Fables dating from between 620 and 564 BCE.
The students helped decorate the hall by creating a ‘stained glass window’ illustrating the story of the fable - the lion with a thorn in its paw and the mouse that helped him.
Epping Forest College principal Saboohi Famili said: "We are delighted to be able to give back to our community and involve our students in initiatives that matter to our local people.
"The high standard of the work of our learners is not only a testament of the excellent education they receive at Epping Forest College but also the pride they take in doing a job well done.
"As always Epping Forest College is keen to listen and get involved in community projects. I would like to invite everyone to join us at our community events and 'Inspired By...' speaker programmes details of which can be found on our website at https://www.efc.ac.uk/news/inspire-by."
Loughton Town Council clerk Enid Walsh said: "The art work was very well received and we are most grateful for the students’ involvement."
