Sample Lyrics (LISTEN to song sample ~ Track 1) NB:
This audio sample is from the Australian version - the generic version 'In our school, we have values...', is also included in the downloads...)
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.
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.
We’re acting with responsibility
In every action that we take.
We are including everybody
With each decision that we make.
Out motto is always do your best
And showing tolerance is our way,
So everyone can walk in freedom,
Looking forward to each new day.
