• Short Summary

    Children in an Austrian village go to their mountainside school on skis.

  • Description

    Titles read: "High School (Very!)".

    Ubergerdu (sp?), Austria.

    Various shots of children coming out of pretty houses in Ubergerdu (sp?), a snow-covered Tyrollean village. They put on skis and make their way through the valley and up a mountainside to their school. Commentator says this is Europe's highest school, over six thousand feet up.

    Inside the school we see a male teacher talking in German to some boys in a classroom - it sounds like a maths lesson. It is so cold you can see the breath of a little boy when he speaks. Then the children put on their skis and go back down the mountain.
