When did you attend Priory?




Who was your most unforgettable teacher?

It's surprising to me how many there were! Barrie and Sue Day, Mr. Gervasio, Mrs. Gregory, Mrs. Hernould, Mr. Batten, Peter Chavannes for starters...

Who are you in touch with now?  

Graham Brand, though I only made friends with him later, and (thanks to the list) Neil Harvey who was really my brother Jan's best friend. Since finding this site I have heard from several of my old classmates. Wow!

Graham Brand


 Who would you like to trace if we could?

Anybody who was in my class.


What's the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

Compared to some of the things I have done since, it was pretty tame. Sneaked out of school to go to the Sheraton with Carolyn Wilson to get a look at Michael Jackson and joined a whole mob of schoolgirls from all over Kingston, all intent on doing the exact same thing.



Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

Stephen DaCosta


Where do you live and what do you do now?

I have just moved from Northern California to Washington DC. I am a journalist, writer, editor.


Tell us about any significant others

There aren't any.

Tell us about your most unusual meeting with a Priory person

Years ago I went with Graham Brand and his nephews to one of those Kiddie Malibu Racing places where you drive around and around a track in a sort of modified lawnmower made up to look like a racing car. I mean I went along and then he made me drive around the track with his youngest nephew, a very nice little boy.


What do you think of the Priory site?

I'm grateful for it.

(Kia asked me to note that she has lost all the extra pounds!)
