Nice shots of schoolboys learning how to cook and sew.
Boy Cooks. Part of THE YOUNG IDEA issue.
Somewhere in northern England.
At a 'north country' school, we see a group of schoolboys walking out into the playground and putting on white aprons and hats. They have their hands inspected for cleanliness by a man, then file into the cookhouse for their cookery lesson and watch a woman grating something.
Several shots of the boys grating, peeling, chopping food, and putting pastry covers over pie and pudding fillings. A boy takes a cooked pie out of the oven. The boys all sit at a long table and have to eat their own pies. Cheeky-looking boy winks as he eats - seems to be enjoying his!
Short sequence shows the boys mending and ironing their own clothes and darning socks. A boy puts clean crockery on a tray and carries it off.
Note: could be an orphanage.
