Jameson School Song[edit]

'Sine Metu'

Eyes alight and ready with a helping hand Minds open out and reaching for the blue In Zimbabwe, we can build a joyous land Sine Metu.

Grateful always for the rain and for the sun We'll make the most of chances, though they may be few This can be a pleasant place for everyone Sine Metu.

Onward, upward, facing all with confidence Scorning the false and fighting for the truth Meeting problems and changing them to stepping stones Sine Metu
