Thanks Mrs Brocherie,

Mrs Brocherie was an amazing women. She was kind, compassionate and understanding. As well as being amazing at teaching Japanese, she also helped me through some pretty hard stuff during High School, including helping me through my Granddad having cancer. She was always there for a chat and a kind word when I needed it. She shared her own personal battle with breast cancer with me too and that meant a lot. She was a friend, not just a teacher. Sadly, when I was year 11, she died of a brain tumour that was detected too late. I think of her often and am forever grateful for everything she did for me. Thank you Mrs Brocherie and I hope that you are resting in peace x
