1.     Come one and all, come let us sing,
        Yes, set aside just everything
        To praise our dear School.
        You do expect us to excel
        So let us all do well,
        If you wish to put  us to the test
        We will always strive to do our best.

2.    We thank our parents, teachers too,
        Our friends and those who've seen us through,
        In song, we salute you.
        We've made mistakes along the way,
        But for us all, please pray,
        With excellence, though young, we'll build our Nation
        Through self-discipline and dedication.

3.      This is no idle boast, nor fun
        Our Alma Mater's second to none,
        We're proud, yes truly proud.
        We can't forget those walls of learning,
        For which our hearts keep yearning
        We shall always hold your good name high
        Let this promise reach up to the sky.
        We shall always hold your good name high
        Let this promise reach up to the sky.
        We shall always hold your good name high
        Let this promise reach up to the sky.
