TWO boys returned to their former primary school to watch the unveiling of a sculpture designed on a model they created.
When Freddie Coombs and Luke Forsyth were at St Mary's primary school, Woodbridge, they put together a model using art straws linked to pipe cleaners and stuck in a cardboard box. This represented different types and ages of people joining together.
Today a six-foot high permanent sculpture has been made based on their work. The sculpture is made out of galvanised steel and is on display in front of the school in Burkitt Road.
Freddie, 12, of Catherine Road, Woodbridge, and Luke, 12, of Green Man Way, Melton, are at Farlingaye High School. They attended the unveiling where they were delighted with the modern sculpture.

The scheme was masterminded by Henry Tebbutt, a professional artist from Woodbridge, and was manufactured by Martlesham Metalcraft.
The piece was unveiled by David Peachey, the county council's director of education. He said: ''It is a good example of the collaboration between a school and a professional artist, the imagination of the children with the expertise of the sculpture to produce something that is very modern and thought provoking."
