YOUNG PLATO

★★★★ - The Guardian

SYNOPSIS

Charting the dream of Headmaster Kevin McArevey and his dedicated, visionary team, YOUNG PLATO illustrates how critical thinking and pastoral care can empower and encourage children to see beyond the boundaries and limitations of their own community, how philosophy can encourage them to question the mythologies of war and of violence, and sometimes challenge the narratives their parents, peers and socio-economic group would dictate, where a marginalized, working class community has for generations been plagued by poverty, drugs and guns.
