Summary

A titled and edited family film showing a series of non-traditional events at two Great Walstead Preparatory School Sports days. Events include a book-on-head balancing event whilst going under a pole limbo-style, a knocking nails in to wood event, a balloon hitting race, a fully covered sack race event, a bicycle circuits race whilst doing maths questions; and a boys fancy dress competition with face masks, fake noses and moustaches.
