When did you attend Priory

1980-1986, S1-S6 


How did you locate the Priory website?

Got an email from a Donald Bennett


Who were your most memorable teachers?

Hmm, difficult to say. They are all unforgettable, except the ones I don't remember ;-). There was Mr. Harvey who pushed me hard in Chemistry, Mr. MacLaughlin and his antics in Physics, Mrs. Gregory and Mrs. Hernould, the rev. Mr. Foster, Mr. Connor from Australia who taught math, Mr. Tolefsson who taught history one year, Mr. Cunningham who improved my math skills and couldn't improve my athletics skills in Oxford House, another maths teacher from England whose name is escaping me at the moment, the geography teacher Mrs. Richards...


Mr. H. E. Cunningham


Who were your best friends at Priory?

Well, at the risk of these people saying "whaaa, this guy was my friend?", I used to hang out with Nikola Ostojic, Robert Subaran, Juliette Jose, Romala Edwards, Carolina Sparrow, Kamal Asnani, and the Peynado brothers in S6  


Kamal Asnani, David & Martin Peynado


Who are you in touch with today?

My sister Ranjana, who also went to Priory and was 4 grades my junior! Other than that, not really anyone, sadly...


Who would you like to track down?

Anyone who knew me!


What was the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

Explored a drawer in Mr. Eccles Chemistry class once. Big mistake. You don't wanna know.

Mr. Eccles


What memories/views do you have of Priory?

An interesting place that certainly fed me the world through a firehose!


Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

I thought Kamal Asnani was pretty crazy. And I recall that Atif Khan used to smoke the good stuff!

Atif Khan


Where do you live and what do you do nowadays?

San Francisco bay area. Basically, after S6 I had to decide: mass murderer or engineering; I picked engineering...for now. The FBI isn't reading this is it!?



Tell us about any significant others

Wife Jyothi Iyer whom I have been happily married to for 10+ years, and one 28 month old son Chinmay.


Tell us about your most unusual meeting with a Priory person

I got an email from Carolina Sparrow a few years ago, but I scared her off again I think! Before that, I exchanged emails with Eleanor Reed, about 10 years ago.

What do you think of the Priory Website?

The website is great. As for improvements, yeah, scan the rest of those yearbooks in! Those are the very ones *I* am in! Plus, whenever a name is listed anywhere, add a year range beside it in brackets to make it easier to navigate (eg: Praveen Murthy [80-86])
