Rosary Priory School 1950's

A Memory of Bushey Heath

My name was Jennifer Barnett and I attended Rosary Priory in the 1950s.  One of my memories is of the nuns teaching us the 'facts of life' which consisted of being told to always wear dresses with sleeves and never to sit in the back row of the pictures .... no reasons were given.  I also remember having to wear white gloves to school, having a nun at the gate to make sure we were all correctly attired.  I remember a school excursion to Rome and wonder what happened to the other girls in my class.  I now live in Australia and feel it is very sad to hear this building is no more - or is it?
