School Song

Let us follow with industry and pride
The example of those who daily strive,
Through patient and unselfish devotion,
For satisfaction in a task well done.

Chorus
Let us go forward Alleyians
To what is wholesome and sublime;
And daily by our lives, record
Our names in the annals of time.

On our walls, carved with earnest Endeavour
By all who have gone before us, mirror
Our Courage and quiet Humility,
A legacy fit for Posterity.

With simple Honesty we here unfold
Our achievements, our efforts and goals;
And daily God's richest hand may bless
Our future years with deserving success.
