It's obviously some event worthy of a photograph, so possibly an important match rather than just an ordinary walk to/ from the sports field. The photographer must have been much higher up and in a prominent position, as those at the front are very aware that they are having their picture taken and are looking up.

I think I get it .... (well for my little mind :) )

OK some School / Schools somewhere .. have done extremely well in whatever sport ? (and they do have some kind of special shoe if you look very closely)

It is considered to be a very important occasion and a celebrity/semi royal is in attendance ..
This is shown by his extremely smart clothes and the fact that he is being 'ushered' along...
All the boys are very pleased to be taking part - smiling so they must have achieved something...
It is being specifically filmed or photographed and as someone already said the photographer is not just taking a snap... he has placed himself in a position high up to hopefully get a great pic.. AND      :) ;) ???  I bet there are more photos and newspaper items somewhere regarding whats going on........'howzat'...   NOW I NEED TO KNOW WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT.  ??? ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

You could well be right, Rena!    I did see the one boy on our side but couldn't work out what he was carrying that was white - and it was his shorts, 'not a white flag'.   ;D

Things are being carried at the middle/rear of the procession.

1. Two boys are carrying a board, like a picture, maybe partially draped
2. Someone behind them is holding a large hurdle like object
3. Boy on left with what looks like a white paper bag or cloth
4. Maybe other items
