Dear Staff,

From the beginning of our time at Perth Modern school, it was clear to us that this was no ordinary place. From unique opportunities to outstanding teachers, this school has offered us more than we could have ever imagined. At Mod, we not only grew physically, academically and mentally, but most importantly we also grew as individuals. Whilst our textbooks and homework taught us about the world around us, it was our teachers and their advice that taught us the impact we could have in this world.

Although the past five years have been without a doubt some of the most memorable years of our lives, we know that this journey would not have been possible without the support of the entire body of staff at Perth Modern School. We would like to thank those that worked hard to make our school a better place including the cleaners, gardeners, IT technicians, finance office, student services team, chaplain and nurse as well as the administrative team of Mr Jurilj, Ms Furphy, Mrs Joll, Ms Leske, Mr Harris, Mrs Reilly, Mrs Wallace and all other admin staff. We thank you because it was your hard work that ensured the smooth and efficient operation of our school. Finally, we would like to thank all of our teachers whether they be from the Mathematics, Science, Music, HASS, English, Arts and Technology or Sport departments. You have all contributed greatly to not only our academic success but also to the development of our personalities and our character; lessons that will last a lifetime. Without your guidance, many of us would have been lost, without your support, many of us would have never succeeded, and without your passion and enthusiasm, our time in high school wouldn’t have been nearly as enjoyable. Put simply, without you as our teachers, life would truly have no class.

People often label Perth Modern School exceptionally unique due to our gifted students and consequent achievements. What they don’t see, however, is the hard work that teachers put in every day to allow us to flourish as best we can. They say it takes a small village to raise a child and, as your students, we know that it takes an entire community to develop the successful adults who make up this year group. Without your dedication and without your support, the sorts of results we celebrate and aim for are simply not achievable and so it is with all our gratitude and appreciation that we thank the people who got us here today.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your kindness, your endless support and your ongoing commitment towards our success, both in and out of the classroom. As we reflect on our journey through high school, we are immensely grateful to the Perth Modern School community for all that you have given us, in many shapes and forms and for many years. We look forward to now begin the next chapter of our lives, heading out into the great unknown with the hope you have instilled in us to make the world a better place for generations to follow.

Thank you.
Yours Sincerely,
The Class of 2018
