the film is released nationally November 2
School Life (“In loco parentis”) is a feature documentary film, following a year in the lives of two inspirational teachers in the only primary-age boarding school in Ireland. Housed in an 18th Century estate, school life embraces tradition and modernity. For John, rock music is just another subject alongside Maths, Scripture and Latin, taught in a collaborative and often hilarious fashion. For Amanda the key to connecting with children is ‘the book’ and she uses all means to snare the young minds. For nearly half a century these two have shaped thousands of minds but now the unthinkable looms: what would retirement mean? What will keep them young if they leave?
Nearly fifty year careers are drawing to a close for the teachers who have become legends with the mantra: reading! rithmetic! rock n roll! …. but for pupil and teacher alike, leaving is the hardest lesson to learn.
