Stories & Testimonials


The Priory Peace Project

The Priory has become the first private school in Montreal to become a member of Peaceful Schools International. With the words from the traditional hymn "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me" in mind, Priory teachers and students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 began their own "peaceful journey", concentrating on developing individual inner peace through activities that emphasized expressing feelings and emotions as well as finding positive solutions to problems. Lessons in cooperation , respecting differences, communicating effectively in a positive manner and resolving conflict creatively and non-violently all figured into "The Priory Peace Project". The culmination of this undertaking took place on June 4th, with a special Assembly. Mrs. Heuff read the students the age-old story of "Stone Soup", about how a community becomes stronger by sharing with each other and working together. At the end of the story, each member of The Priory Family was given a stone that they placed in a freshly cemented mandala circle waiting for them outside. This Peace Circle opened onto a Friendship Garden recently planted by the Grade 3 class. After reciting "The Priory Peace Pledge", the students looked on proudly as the Peaceful Schools International flag was slowly raised over their school.

Calling ourselves a "Peaceful School" is not a "fait accompli" just because we met the criteria established by Peaceful Schools International, rather, it is an ongoing process where peace must be taught, modeled and worked at. The Priory Peace Circle and Friendship Garden are only the beginning and serve as reminders of what we have accomplished and what we need to strive for. ...

Another First for The Priory

Throughout The Priory's sixty year history in Quebec, the school has been at the forefront of innovative ideas and novel practices. The first began in 1947 with the creation of a "co-educational" English private school founded on Catholic traditions. Co-education was not "de rigueur" at that time and the two founders of The Priory, Mrs. Ballantyne and Mrs. Howlett , were deemed "crazy maverick females, whose time had definitely not come!" Time certainly proved these critics wrong. In 2000, under principal John Marinelli's direction, The Priory once again took the initiative and organized the first Montreal Regional Heritage Fair which has continued to this very day. This year, with Mrs. Deborah Heuff at the helm, The Priory once again has taken on a new venture - that of becoming the first private school in Montreal to become a member of Peaceful Schools International. To become a peaceful school, a number of criteria must be met. The school must have a safe inviting climate where parents, students and staff work together as a team. In such an environment, students are encouraged to make choices and to be responsible for their actions, to be open-minded and accepting of others who may be different, and to learn ways to deal with conflict in a non-violent manner. All of this embodies The Priory. ...
