  • Description

    Pleasures of a seaside school - American children whose lessons are not dull.

    Venice, California. United States of America (USA).

    MS children standing beside old school desks or seats; the teacher stands facing them; teacher and pupils all wear swimsuits; and the teacher wears a bathing cap too. Must be playtime: all the children turn and run towards the ocean. Closer shot of children running into water; one girl takes off a coat or robe and hands it to another who's staying on the beach. The children run and jump and splash.

    MS of the 'classroom' area with children standing at desks again; holding books; teacher stands in front with open book. (There is even a table for the teacher with a bell on it). CU teacher walking along row of desks; stopping to help a child - the children are now seated and reading from their books. A small child in front raises hand and the teacher comes up to help. (May be in Venice; California - child's T-shirt says 'Venice').
