Hospital School

A few years ago I spent a lot of time helping a student who was trying to research the topic of children learning while they were in hospital - it was one of the more tricky subjects I've been asked about, and to be honest we struggled to find plenty of suitable material. But it's hardly a new area of learning - the film clip below dates from 1945, and shows how children were treated and rehabilitated in a Hospital and College in Hampshire.

The clip is courtesy of the British Council film website. You can find a free collection of other vintage films on various topics by clicking here. Or for further similar items on this site, use the 'Educational Films' link in the 'Hot Topics' menu on the right hand side of this page.
