Description

This whole school, anthem-style song highlights nine core values:

• Integrity

• Respect

• Fairness

• Honesty & Trustworthiness

• Understanding, Tolerance & Inclusion

(The Government's Nine Values for Australian Schooling)

Sample Lyrics (LISTEN to song audio sample in Preview at the top of this page)

Chorus

In our school, we have values

That show how much we care,

About giving all a fair go,

In this great land that we share.

Verse 1

Caring for ourselves and others,

Always aiming to do our best.

We’re treating everybody fairly,

With understanding and respect.

Building character is our destiny,

We are working for the good of all;

With sincerity and honesty,

We’re moving forward, walking tall.
