Remember Katherine Norton?
Kathy in 1988
When did you attend Priory?
Who was your most unforgettable teacher?
Ms Gloria Grant. MAN....she could give a tongue LASHING!!! I can never forget her ability to tell any culprit who was "chatting" in her class to "never mind, she will see us in the future selling icy mint at half-way-tree round about!!!" HAHAHAHAHA. I use that on my children now.....and it WORKS!!! I also have a soft spot for Mrs. Carter. She was great.

Who were your best friends at school?
WOW. There by the time our "group" reached 5th form, we ran the school. It was Marc Melville, Javier Ramirez, Stephanie Tame, Selena Dyke, Tiffany Reid, Dino Cartwright, Shannon Pritchard, Jason Levy and myself. Stephanie Being the best friend 1st through 5th.
Jane Moon, Selena Dyke, Jason Levy, Stephanie Tame, Kathy Norton and Javier Ramirez
Who are you in touch with now?
Stephanie and I are still close, also Marc and Selena. Gerry Harper (from a year ahead of me is my 1st son's Godfather), Carolyn Campbell (about 5 years ahead) is my daughter's Godmother , Matthew and Simone Sale,.....I could go on and on.
Who would you like to trace if we could?
Shannon Pritchard, oh and Susan Mailey. She was in my 1st form class (84-85 I believe). She was Australian and she had a brother called Tony and a younger sister Lisa. I always wonder how she is. Her leaving (her Dad was an expatriate) was my first taste of how hard it would become to go to Priory and every couple of years watch your close friends go back to their own countries!!
What's the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?
Anyone who knows me knows that there was A LOT!!! I still fear Mrs. Gregory's "clip-clop" of her shoes coming into the activity centre!!!! HAHAHA. I think the worst was "sculling" an entire day of school with about 1/2 the school and going to the beach to say goodbye to Andrew Finlayson. Ahhh, lots of people were in BIG trouble!!!
Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?
Apart from myself.....Gerry Harper and Chris Moo top THAT list. Chris will always be remembered as a complete mad man!!!
Where do you live and what do you do now?
I live here in Jamaica. I am married with 3 children. My husband and I own an automotive servicing centre, Automex Ltd.
Kathy and Dax
Kyle, Alana and Blaine
Tell us about any significant others
I was waiting for this one. I am VERY proud to say that I am married to Dax DeSouza (88-90). We started dating at Priory....and 16 years later, 12 of which married, and 3 GREAT kids, we are happier than ever!! Thank you Priory for changing my life!!!
What do you think of the Priory site?
I LOVE it. I would love to know where the teachers are. What they've been up to, and who their favourite students were and why!!!! That would be a twist!!!
