School Anthem

Gladly we are marching onwards,
Comrades tested, comrades true,
Steadfastly our colours flying
Lifting high the white and blue.
In a happy band united
Ever loyal to our school
On the field and in the classroom
Honour we its every rule.

These the mottos we must follow
‘Pray and work’ unceasingly,
‘Always ready’, ‘Always faithful’
Act in ‘Faith and Charity’
‘Nothing but the best’ we strive for
In whate’er we may achieve,
Steadfastly we’ll fight our battles
Nothing unattempted leave.

When through life alone we journey
When our College days are o’er
And for us the deep clear bell-call
Rings its summons never more.
Yet we’ll keep the joy, the freshness
Of the happy days we’ve known
And the rule of old we’ll honour
“Glory be to God Alone”.
