Description

This is a film of the Duke of Edinburgh visiting South Hunsley School in Hull, who put on various exhibitions and displays.

A group of school students are in the school grounds wearing life jackets and pushing a large rowing boat on wheels.  Another group in red tracksuits do some gymnastic rolls and tramp lining in the sports field.  This is followed by a police dog display and then into a classroom where some exhibitions have been set up, including one for how to look after pet rabbits.  Food is being prepared in the school kitchen.  Back outside a group are awaiting the arrival of the Duke, who duly descends in a helicopter to be greeted by the assembled dignitaries.  He walks off briskly, waving to all and is given a tour of the exhibitions, and is shown the school horse.  The film ends with a display involving rope gymnastics.
