Judy Mendes and Mandy Hornby
Who are you in touch with today?
Just members of my family.
Who would you like to track down?
David Brown, Angus MacGregor, Mandy Hornby and Naama Bavly. I remember being devastated when Naama left Jamaica and went to Israel.
What was the wildest thing you did at Priory?
I remember fighting with David Brown while playing musical chairs (the version using arms instead of chairs) and both of us being sent back to class in disgrace. Big problem as my mother, Anne Mendes, was the class teacher.
Mrs. Anne Mendes
Tell us about your memories of Priory and Jamaica
I remember the prep school most, the crunchy gravel, standing on tip toe to reach the water fountain and during tropical storms listening to the radio to find out if the school was closed. Sports days remain in my mind, not so much the events but carrying a chair across the sports fields which seemed enormous.
Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?
Angus McGregor always made us laugh in class.
Where do you live and what do you do nowadays?
I live in Beckenham, Kent, UK and I work for a stockbroking firm in the City of London.
Tell us about any significant others
I am divorced. I live with my two children Caroline (13) and James (11).
