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!
