Water Street, Christ Church
Christ Church Girls School is one of the two remaining all girls' primary schools in Barbados. The school has its origins in the Kingsland Girls' School which was opened in 1898 on the Kingsland Estates. In 1921 the school was moved to its present location and in 1926 it was amalgamated with the Providence Girls' School to form the Christ Church Girls' School.
Over the years, the Christ Church Girls' School has been fortunate to be under the leadership of knowledgeable and forward-looking principals including Miss Hewitt and Miss Eugenia Carter-Hinds. The latter, whose tenure lasted from 1944 - 1968 is credited with composing the School Song, instituting the school's P.T.A. in 1954 and initiating the school's Savings Co-operative (the first in the island) in 1968.

It is not easy all the way
To do what's good and right.
But if we try hard ev'ry day
We'll some day win the fight.
Alma Mater, Alma Mater, Alma Mater.
To strive and never say "I can't"
To always say "I'll never try"
To persevere though hearts faint
And hands though feign would lie.
With effort strong and patiently,
We'll work with hands and feet.
And share the good o'er land and sea
Wherever we shall meet.
Our school days soon shall pass away
And scattered we shall be,
But in our hearts the tie shall last
That binds us close to Thee.
The one strong bond that e'er prevails,
The theme our hearts shall sing
Is, "Perseverance" never fails
And God in everything.
