Boys from Fegans Childrens Homes visit the zoo, go camping and travel to Liverpool before assembling back at school for an Open Day.


Boys from Fegans Childrens Homes visit to Whipsnade Zoo and later engage in outdoor novelty races and games. In London the boys gather for a journey to Liverpool passing through L.M.S Edge Hill Goods Station. Having arrived in Liverpool we see the ill-fated liner Duchess of Atholl, both from the dock and on deck. We later see a bishop visiting the school in Stony Stratford for an Open Day and meeting the boys and adult staff members and governors.
