Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

This isn't Dead Poets Society, but it will fill you with the same zest for the power of education—and an excellent teacher. For John and Amanda Leyden, work as instructors at Headfort School over the past 46 years has been more than just any vocation. Within the walls of the school, they are caregivers and coaches, music managers and theatre directors. No matter if you’re an introverted recluse or an easily distracted troublemaker, in the eyes of John and Amanda, you belong. Observe the comings and goings of this school in the charming hamlet of Kells, tucked in the rolling hills of County Meath, and celebrate not only the singularly special bond between teacher and student—but the importance of inspiring a new generation.
