Originally produced by Video Project in 2016.
A year in the lives of two inspirational teachers in the only primary-age boarding school in Ireland. Headfort School is a revered institution that sees students attend from all over the world. Married teaching duo John and Amanda Leyden have sat at the front of Headfort's classrooms for 46 years. For John, rock music is just another subject alongside Math, English, Scripture, and Latin. For Amanda, the key to connecting with children is through books, and she uses all means available to ensnare their minds. As John and Amanda ponder retirement, the film quietly ponders: Will their intimate, caring cultivation of future generations live on, or will it vanish like so many community-centered practices? SCHOOL LIFE is a joyful and humorous account of the success that schools can achieve when students are invited to play a role in their own curriculum, and offers a wealth of strategies and techniques for fostering greater educational outcomes for schools of all types.
