School Song

O Ellerslie, O Ellerslie,
Source of light and education
O Ellerslie, O Ellerslie,
Fount of meek illumination.
The hills beyond with halls sublime,
Encourage, exhort wise use of time,
While neighbouring factories supply
Scope in plenty for deft hands to try.

O Ellerslie, O Ellerslie,
Generous alma mater benign,
O Ellerslie, O Ellerslie,
You nurture and imbue the mind.
Sons and daughters in their station
Will find deep pride in this our nation
And torches be diffusing light
Beacons fair for those pursuing right
