Simon Whittaker's Priory Encounter

Just kinda stumbled on the site actually.  I was just browsing and was checking in on old schools!

I currently live in Chicago, USA.  Moved here with family in 1985, and have stayed ever since (passport says I'm English!) and actually ran into another old Priory Student a few years ago by the name of Alex Pool.  We were working at a mortgage company, and in conversation one day I mentioned that I used to live in Jamaica.  One thing led to another, and he brought in his old Priory yearbooks, and sure enough, there we both were!  Small world!  He was a year or two behind me I think.  Anyway, I really did enjoy my time at Priory, though at 38 the memories are a little fuzzy!  I miss Jamaica a lot too, it's one of those places that get into your soul and stays!  I have visited a lot in the last 10 years (mainly Negril) but one day I would love to get back to Kingston and check out all the places I remember.  Hard to believe it's been 30 years!

I think I was at Priory from about 1971-2 through 1975, when we moved back to England.  My Dad worked for Beechams, and they transferred him a lot!
