Humorous film of young boy's fears on his first day at a new school.

This fictitious film shows a new boy arriving at St. Faith's Preparatory School, frightened. He is further frightened by a creepy school master lurking in the trees. He runs away, minus his cap and scarf. He is ambushed by a group of boys who seek to use him as a ball in a rugby scrum. He escapes and is chased around the school grounds and the neighbourhood. He runs into the creepy school master again before being discovered by Matron. She throws him onto a bed in the open air and pulls the bed away towards a dilapidated looking infirmary. He escapes and runs away. He is confronted by the boys again but defends himself and they run away. With new found confidence, he marches into the school where he is welcomed by Matron and the school master, altogether nicer people.
