RSK School Song
- A Nation's strength lies in its youth
- We've heard the wise men say.
- And youth must be well disciplined
- In study and at play.
- 'Tis here,within these walls we learn
- What sages taught of old
- And walk in footsteps left behind
- By Bharat's heroes bold.
- Let's sing with joy together
- In voices loud and clear
- We love our Alma Mater
- The school to us so dear.
- The Green and White forever
- Our colours and our pride
- "Be just and fear not ever"
- Our motto and our guide.
- No obstacles can be too big
- No task that can't be done
- When mind and heart unite to work
- All battles can be won.
- For Live's great battles we'er equipped
- Win victories we must
- With justice and with courage
- In God implicit trust.

Under The Banyan Tree
Soul of RSK
Over hills, and over seas;
Crossing every Galaxy,
We are sailing, we are flying;
Coming to our Banyan Tree.
Thus go the lines of the Old Students’ Association of RSK’s (OSA RSK) anthem, Coming Home Now. It is not about going back to school, or to the alma mater, for the thousands of alumni of this bastion of education. It is all about going back to what RSKites have come to identify as ‘Home’ over the years – the iconic and legendary Banyan Tree that towers over the mammoth campus. One topic that can easily make the old and the new generations of RSK hit off well between them despite there being decades of age difference is anecdotes from and of the Banyan Tree. Stories abound of how great ideas were born under the cool and soothing shades of the Banyan. Hundreds of achievements have been felicitated, thousands of Reunions held, lakhs of failures soothed and crores of moments have become memories under the shades of the venerated Banyan. During OSCAR (the Interschool Cultural Extravaganza and Reunion organised by the OSA), it is a sight indeed to see the number of alumni from batches that passed out before the 2000s queueing up at the place where their thoughts are firmly rooted; touching the tree ever so gently to feel a connect back to the good old days, taking pictures of it and with it, talking to it, and wishing time had just stood still. Legend has it of alumni who used to stay in the School Hostel taking back with them fistsful of soil from here. One alumnus is reported to have sprinkled the soil he took from here over the foundation of the School he has built, and one other keeps a small packet with the bark of the tree in his prayer room. The Campus has quite a few Conference Halls, one Open-Air Stage overlooking the huge Playground, and one with better staging facilities in the Primary School campus right across the road. Yet, everyone insists that the one stage that counts is the one under the shade of the Banyan Tree. All events big and small – School assemblies, Farewell and Get-togethers, and special programmes for Christmas, Children’s Day, Teachers’ Day, and so on – are held here. The OSA would rather spend a fortune and set up a stage around the Banyan rather than use the ones already available. “The Banyan Tree has a character around it. It has a personality. It lives and breathes with us. The other places are all inanimate. They do not encapsulate the gamut of emotions and myriad feelings we otherwise feel when we think of assembling under the Tree here,says one of the Organisers behind last year’s OSCAR. It is true, after all. A visit to the Library, the Chemistry Lab, the Lecture Hall or to the more recent Montfort Hall does not elicit the same level of enthusiasm as does a visit to this bastion. No one really remembers when the Tree was planted. On a casual chat with some alumni from the batch of the 1970s (the school was established in 1964), they said that they always remembered the tree as it stands now, and none recalls seeing it as a sapling or as a slender plant. Some say that perhaps the School grew around the Tree, and not vice versa. One look at the gigantic tree, and you feel it could probably be true. Its canopy provides home to at least a thousand avian families, and under its roots are benches the students use during lunch. It provides a calm venue for students rehearsing for various competitions and also for students who sit in a corner learning the lessons of the day or reading a book as they wait for their rides back home after class. Teachers group in one corner as they valuate answer sheets or test note books. Over weekends, karate and NCC sessions are held, while in one corner children play with their footballs and so on. The Tree is truly the heart, soul and breath around which life in the campus revolves. For alumni from the 1980s and early 1990s, the Banyan brings memories: of classes being held under its branches; of Brother Vincent And Cissy Miss (the Music Teacher) getting ready the choir for the day’s songs; of Soosai Michael Sir’s impromptu quiz programmes. of Brother Augustine, much like the other stalwarts before him, standing like a Commander atop a fort lording over the day’s activities; of Joseph Sir and Veeraiyyan Sir (the PT Teachers) checking students’ uniforms and the polish on the shoes and how non-compliance was dealt with. The students of the Primary Schools and the Junior School would feel a thrill that was not matched by any other when they had to assemble under the Banyan for a special programme – it made them feel one with the bigger boys and girls. It was amusing, looking at the Senior, tall and lanky boys and girls from the XI and XII standard looking down at these Primary school students who were barely taller than their knees. But then, at this citadel, just being there meant one was grown up and a big boy or girl. About a decade back, due to a heavy downpour, the tree was badly hit by lightning and a part of it fell off. There was collective mourning at whether the tree had started seeing its twilight days. The Management of the time set up support arrangements for the tree to stand on. Prayers were made. Frantic emails started going around in the Alumni Email Distribution lists. A small sapling was planted in the place where the tree had fallen off. Parts of the tree that were considered dangerous were cut off. And, as though a miracle, the tree started showing signs of life all over again. People could breathe easy. The support structures soon came off as well. All was once again well with the world. As the Golden Jubilee of the School arrives a couple of years from now, there will be as much a celebration of the Banyan Tree as there would be of the school’s 50 years. Thousands of alumni from all corners of the World will congregate at School to reconnect, to relive and to rejuvenate. And will wait for the grand finale and flourish as they reiterate they’re all part of the RSK family with the School Song. The goosebumps will reappear as they sing,
The Green and White forever
Our colours and our pride
Be just and fear not ever
Our motto and our guide!
