What was your nickname at Priory?



How did you locate the Priory website?

By surfing the internet



Who were your most memorable teachers?

Mrs. Nell Bourke.  She would have her literature students from "S" form up to her house for dinner and book reviews by her pool. She would also take us to museums during school.  Mrs. Bourke believed that it was important to educate the whole child, both in and out of the classroom.

What do you think of the Priory Website?

I think that the Priory website is fantastic.  I have been in touch with a few of my friends and could not have done it without having gotten their e-mail addresses from the website.  Thanks, Stephen for all of your hard work.
