The School Song


Hurrah for Scots of noble name from north across the sea!
We’ll pass it on in the fairest fame for the years that yet shall be.
We’ll stride along and meet with song whatever life allots!
And play our game or chant our rhyme with a great ‘All hail!’ for Scots

So we sing a song of the boys that were
Who are men of today you see:
And we brace ourselves to do and dare,
As the men who are to be.

Then make the sounding rafters ring with lusty strains and long:
Our hearts leap in the song we sing with chorus full and strong.
Let God and right the watchword be, let Scots have honoured name:
And joy be ours to know that we were heralds of its fame.

So hurrah once more for the boys that were
Who are men of today you see:
And hurrah for us who will do and dare
In the greater days to be

E Ihoa Atua,
O nga Iwi Matoura,
Ata whaka rongona;
Me aroha noa.
Kia hua ko te pai;
Kia tau to atawhai;
Manaakitia mai

God of nations, at thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet;
Hear our voices we entreat,
God defend our free land!
Guard Pacific’s triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar;
God defend New Zealand!
