Class Ode
Words by Isla Mae Chick                Arr: Juanita

Oft, oft, dear class-mates, in our sky of fair hopes ray
Oft's been a shadow, this our parting day.
Sadly now we leave you, dear old school we love so well
And with backward glances, say our sad farewell.

Chorus: - 
Sadly, O Sadly,
Do we say farewell to-day;
Gladly, O gladly
Would we longer stay.

Far in the future would we look without a fear
Keeping our motto ever bright and clear.
Let our voyage be joyful till the day of life has passed.
Then in heaven anchor as our port at last.
