Our school motto is ‘Truth, Honesty, Friendship, Respect

This is our school where we come each day to learn about our world

And about how great each one of us can be
May we all live happily here together
May our school be full of joy and happiness
May love dwell here among us every day
Love of one another
Love of all people everywhere
Love of life itself
And Love of God
Let us remember
That as many hands build a house
So many hearts make a School.
