School Song

Deacons we pledge to you
Our hearts so dear and true.
Your walls embrace us;
You're the foundation of our education
Solid and firm and strong,
To you we belong.

Deacons we love you so
Oh how with pride we glow,
Deacons oh Deacons
Oh how we love you.

So we would never trade
What you of us have made
Hard work and loyalty;
Truth and humility.
Kindness to one and all
Though they be great or small.
All these things you have taught
Completing knowledge sought.

May God bless you each day
As pupils work and play.
Let minds be moulded,
Fine as the potter's clay.
Teachers your guidance seek From the great Teacher; Making each mind you shape, Purer and richer.
