The Headmaster of Mile Oak Approved Boys School films his pupils aboard a paddle steamer, and the Martello campsite at Walton-on-the-Naze. The boys are later seen participating in a cross-country run and in various Sports Day events, including tug-of-war, a sack race, and the long jump - the victors are awarded prizes. The inhabitants of Portslade mark Coronation Day, 12th May 1937, with a parade of floats.
