I've been trying to find the history behind St Dominic's Priory school, and in particular the building, in Mirimar here in Port Elizabeth to post with this photo of the front of the main building of the school, but seem to come up short. On St Dominic's Priory's website I did get the background history of the school, but not the building.
The following is quoted of their website: In 1867 six foundresses left Sion Hill, Dublin, and set sail for a missionary station in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. They established the Holy Rosary Convent there. Two other Catholic schools were also established in Port Elizabeth in the following years: Marist Brothers College for boys (started by the Marist Brothers) and Saint Dominic’s Priory (started by the Cabra Dominican Sisters). Holy Rosary Convent, Marist Brothers College and Priory High then merged to form Trinity High School – for boys and girls. A Junior School continued to exist at the Priory. They took up residence in the Holy Rosary Convent buildings in Central, Port Elizabeth. Urban decline and economic factors resulted in this hopeful venture being reassessed and a move to Priory being undertaken in 2000. The Holy Rosary buildings were sold.
