School Song

Discipline, the key to be the best
No other way can guarantee success
Our steps are confident to seek our dreams
No matter how impossible they seem
We will give thanks in our victories and be shining lights for our school...
We meet from day to day,
And fight for better things to come,
In work, in rule, in play.

Chorus
God bless our school
Let the time we spend here be remembered as excellence
We're on the move
A Nation progressing together, and going the distance
With our Vision strong, Discipline our rule
We are Deighton Griffith School

Excelling knowledge and abilities
Resplendent in pride and community
For what is worthy is the goal to win
Ryhthm of the Heart of Fight that beats within
We will show the world what it is to be ambassadors for our School.....

We are authors of our future
