Students at this modern state school learn about finances in the real world by setting up their own bank.
M/S of two school boys, one is leaning against a wall to write a cheque which he goes on to exchange with the other boy for a pair of football boots. M/S of two schoolgirls - one writes a cheque for the other's hockey stick. C/U of an antiquated printing press, tilt up to show a teacher and two school boys. Various shots of the teacher feeding bits of paper into the press to make the cheque books.
M/S of a school girl taking a cheque to a girl and two boys behind a counter. One boy takes the cheque to a file to check the girl's current account details. The girl's cheque is seen being stamped and the girl is given her money, behind her a queue of school children wait to be served. M/S of a girl standing in front of a notice board, she is joined by a school boy. Various C/Us of notices, some hand made, advertising the bank's services.
C/U of glacier cherries being added to a sponge cake, a girl picks up the cake and takes it over to her teacher, who assesses the cake. The girl gives the teacher a cheque - presumably this is for ingredients and not a bribe for a good mark!
M/S of two boys sanding a wooden 'Wendy' house, panning shot around the workshop to show other boys at work. M/S of a teacher in a white coat looking at a foot stool made by a student, he writes in his mark book. The student, a teenage boy, writes the teacher a cheque to buy the stool.
Note: this story is a good example of modern sixties schools - lots of concrete and co-ed!
