What was the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

What memories/views do you have of Priory?

Priory days where some of the best memories I have. I was the Boy Scout troop leader and attained the Chief Scout award presented by Sir Florizel Glasspole and met Prince Phillip  as a Chief Scout amongst every day adventures and always being teased and called, Bwaay Scout  . Once I got in trouble and was scolded by Mr. Fowler, who was giving a Hollywood  film crew a tour of the school and they hired me for a movie $750 per day, big money back then. The Priory Spanish class trip to Mexico was unforgettable.

Tell us about your most unusual meeting with a Priory person

I ran into Charles Western in Antigua while I was on the island racing in a offshore powerboat race.


What do you think of the Priory Website?

My great granfather came to Jamaica and built a textile mill in Spanish Town named Ariguanabo from Cuba which  was eventually nationalized by the Jamaican Government. After the famous five flights a day speech, we left the island and moved to the United States but I we could not tell any of my friends for fear of repercussions. Those that remember the State of Emergency will know what I mean.

The point is that Priory website has given me the opportunity to rekindle some friendships that I thought were only memories. Thank you Stephen for a fantastic job that has us remembering our school days, friendships, teachers and a school that is and was very dear to our hearts and for that you are a jolly good fellow.
