History

Modernians or "Mods" as it is affectionately known originated in 1932 as an ex-student and associated club for Perth Modern School.

Although the club does not have a formal affiliation with the School, our emblem, the Sphinx, is shared with the School, and a great many former students of the School identify with the club as the only remaining sporting club which relates to the Perth Modern School. The Clubrooms and grounds are located less than 2 kilometers from the Perth Modern School campus.
