School Life (In Loco Parentis)

Directors: Neasa Ní Chianáin, David Rane

Ireland, Spain 2016

This perfect family-friendly film observes a year in the lives of two inspirational teachers at Ireland’s only primary level boarding school. Headfort School in Kells, Co Meath is a magical place where tradition and modernity are embraced in Hogwarts-like surroundings. In this topsyturvy world of rock music, Shakespeare and woodland forts, teaching couple, John and Amanda Leyden have been shaping thousands of minds with their unorthodox teaching styles for almost half a century.

Post screening discussion with film makers Neasa Ní Chianaín and David Rane.
