SENIOR SCHOOL Reflecting on Valedictory Day Guildford Grammar School students work and live across the globe often in unexpected areas. Just prior to Valedictory Eve a number of Year 12 students reflected on their time at the School and their plans for 2018 and beyond. Guildford has been a positive experience for me, a lot of good, fun experiences and teachers who believed in me and gave me opportunities. My plan for next year is to go to WAAPA (West Australian Academy of Performing Arts) studying music, after that who knows? But definitely something to do with music. Blake Weller (He) School has been alright, but I am really looking forward to the freedom of being out of school. Next year my plan is to go to Muresk Agricultural College and then either back to the farm or a diesel mechanics apprenticeship. Jackson Chomley (Sc) Guildford has been a very good experience for me. Hectic, but worth it, always something to do and a huge range of opportunities. I am looking forward to post-school freedom! My plan is to go to UWA (University of Western Australia) and study geography and philosophy. I want to follow this up with a post graduate teaching qualification before I head back to Guildford! Owen Connor (He) It is difficult to describe my experience at Guildford in a few words, absolutely fantastic, the best years of my life. Short term I am looking forward to the Pink Floyd concert! Next year I am planning to study business management at Curtin. I want to travel as much as I can in the next few years, visiting family in Germany and Austria first and then the rest of Europe. Andrew Wirth (Be) I have really enjoyed school and tried to make the most of my time here. I’m really looking forward to being responsible for myself as an adult. Post-school I am looking forward to studying at university, probably Politics or Humanities but definitely not Science! I’m also really looking forward to travelling. I am planning to begin with Europe and the United Kingdom where I have family. Nicholas MacLachlan (Wb) I have felt privileged and honored to represent such a fine school that looks after its students so well. My plan for next year is to study Media at Melbourne University.
