B(l Crnra The children come to the Indian residential school from isolated areas where no provincial or day schools exist. Some are from broken homes. A small percentage are orphans. The school has an outdoor swimming pool, basketball and boxing facilities, a large playground and a winter rink for skating and hockey. The Indian girls, trained by nuns in folk dancing, have won prizes in dance festivals. In Eyes of Children, the youngsters are seen in their classrooms, at play and in their dormitories near bedtime. The camera records their mounting excitement as they rehearse a nativity tableau, paint home-made decorations and practise carols. In the producer's original plan, the Indian school film was to fill a 15-minute segment of a Christmas special from Vancouver. Robertson was so charmed on his first encounter with the children that he decided to devote the entire program to them.
