School song[edit]

We are Timpany
True knowledge we will seek
With loving hearts and open hands
We prepare to serve our land
We strive for excellence
Disciplined we want to be
We resolve to seek integrity
Live our lives in honesty

Chorus:
We will work, we will play
We will join together and pray
Our banner everyone will see,
that we are Timpany

Persevere to attain
Perfection and acclaim
Undaunted though the Road be rough
Our strength is from above
True wisdom we desire
For honour we aspire
For a School where love and truth are shown
God our saviour’s name is known
