I undertake always to honour
The name of my school.
To abide by its rules and regulations,
To take part in all extra curricular activities
To handle all its possessions and equipment with
To be courteous, obedient, co-operative and
Respectful to my teachers both in and out
Of school, and to work hand – in – hand
With the rest of the students for the Upliftment
Of myself and school.
Where the mind is without fear
And the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where words have not been broken up
Into fragments by narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches
Its arms towards Perfection;
Where the clear stream of Reason
Has not lost its way into the
Dreary Desert of sand of Dead Habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom My Father
Let my Country Awake.
