School Song[edit]

COURAGE IS DESTINY

May all we learn in here our school
By thought and deed be shown.
Let living truth within us rule
And seeds of love be sown.
CHORUS
That men in all our deeds may see
Courage is Destiny; Courage is Destiny.
We pray for grace, serenity
To keep a humble mind,
That we may learn through charity,
To love all human kind.
CHORUS
Undaunted, though alone we stand,
Upholding what is right-
Proud children of our Mother Land
With truth our stay and might
CHORUS
All that is good may we retain,
When scattered far and wide.
May we our destiny attain.
With courage as our guide,
To show that by our constancy-
Courage is Destiny; Courage is Destiny.
