 What are your special memories of Priory?

I have good memories of my times there, though there were some tough ones as well.  I cherish my memories of the library – old and new.  I distinctly recall discovering Laura Ingals Wilder’s “Little House On The Prairie” books in the old library and then sitting in the sun by the big window in the new library avidly reading the books after the move.  I remember playing 4 square in the Junior School quadrangle.  I remember passing out during the 400 meters on track & field day and playing tennis on the courts by the teacher’s apartments.  Great memories of Alberga Football as my brother played on the team and working in the tuck shop selling pizza slices.
