The Perth Modernian Society is a vibrant and respected organisation that represents the alumni (former students and staff) of Western Australia’s first senior secondary government school. It values the rich heritage, proud and varied history, and enduring legacy of our school and promotes collegiality, educational excellence and inclusiveness. 

The Society provides opportunities to connect Modernians of all ages, preserve the history and traditions of Perth Modern School and supports and encourages current students to achieve their personal best.    

Perth Modern School is currently flying the flag exceptionally high as the number one ranked WA school for academic excellence in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. 

The Society is hoping to find ways to engage with all former Perth Modern School students so that the school’s rich history can be represented in the Society’s alumni. 

So, this is a call to:

  • reconnect with alumni who attended Mod to ensure you are part of the Perth Mod story
  • reinvigorate the Society to ensure that the history of your time at Mod is celebrated and not lost.
