School Graduation Poem

So here we are at the end of the year

As the real world knocks on our door we fear

What will come what will be

Who cares honey cause it’s you and me


It was Casey Grammar that got us here

I think we are all ready, it’s pretty clear

CGS has given us the key

To finely craft our destiny


Whether you started in prep or year seven

The school environment here is heaven

To facilitate a safe place of learning

This exciting school got us all yearning


Our mentors that guide us, provide us

With this elated sense of self and joy

Everyone had a right to feel and be safe

Of the path of right we did not strafe


There was Storr and Polous and Hill

Wise words and cheek into us they would grill

When some of our classes ended in disarray

They would always have smiles the next day


For support there was Adams, Buchingham and Elvish

When we opened our mouths they were in anguish.

We teased, we taunted, we flirted

They were wise enough to keep their attention averted


Bonne, duffy and drinkwater lead the way

In the comic relief of the math and science we learnt during the day.

If ever we were down or feeling low

Their sense of humor was an amazing show


But teachers they only account for a bit

For the mold of Casey Grammar that we all fit

The friends that we have and kept close

Can be the ones that help us the most


The people in the year of 2009

You guys before me friends of mine

Have help me in ways that no other could

Always there to help me laugh, you understood


I am here to say thanks and good luck

For what everyone here who has made me unstuck

From all the downs and lows of life

Though admittedly it most mostly through strife


Thank you to the teachers and my friends

The weaknesses in my life that you guys mend

I want you to know I will always help in return

For each one of you my respect you have earned.
