St Peter's Convent

Next door to Milner Hall and part of St Peter's Church buildings is St Peter's Convent. The numbers of sisters here are dwindling as I understand. Currently they run St Peter's Convent Nursery School. I myself went to a convent - I hope these nuns aren't as fierce as some of mine were!

  1. I have nothing against nuns but I hate visiting convents. May be because of the bad experiance with them while I was in school.

    But Beautiful picture.

  2. It doesn't look like a "typical" convent in my opinion. I grew up a protestant Lutheran so I have no experiences with nuns in school!

  3. Not quite sure why I went to a convent school, my family aren't even Catholic, but there you go!

  5. I remember the nuns from my elementary school and also remember one time being on the grounds of the nuns convent. I remember the fear of just being on the grounds.

  6. It certainly looks well-kept. The walls are so white!

  7. I had a mean nun too. It really does look like a nun kind of place.

  8. The poor old-time teaching nuns have such a bad rap.

  9. The thought of Sister Patricia discovering I hadn't done my homework strikes fear even now!

  10. Oi! And did they use corporal punishment?

  11. No corporal punishment fortunately! Just a lot of strictness & discipline! Probably could do with a bit more of that in some schools!
