An early topical newsreel of the opening of St. Aloysius Infant School in Hebburn in June 1928. The film shows a procession of marching bands, banners and children down Argyle Street, traveling from St Aloysius Church to the new infant school. Joseph Thorman, Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, and other priests follow behind in open top horse-drawn carriages. At the church Bishop Thorman blesses the new Catholic Sunday school building and gives a speech to the crowd. The film ends with group portraits of children.
