The Summerwood Primary School Song

Learning With No Bounds

Bless this school O Lord we pray

Make it safe by night and day

Bless these walls so firm and stout

Keeping want and trouble out'

Bless the roof and gables tall

Let Thy peace lie over all

Bless this door that it may prove

Ever open to joy and love.

Seen ons skool dit bid ons Heer

Om te strewe tot u eer

Seen die mure wat so sterk

Om ons waak terwyl ons werk

Seen ons skool met grond omheen

Vul ons skool Heer met u Seen

Mag die deur vir ons ontsluit

u Genade en Liefde wyd.

Where the surf meets the ivory sand

Stand a school with a record grand

It's a school which we honour,

serve and love

Where we're thankful for guidance

from above

Here we're taught to do our best 

Here we work and play with zest

With our motto to guide us as we go

"Do ye even so.""

 

Kom Summerwood strewe na vore

Geesdriftig, gelukking en bly

Ons sal u naam altyd hou

Ons kan met trots op u leuse bou

O Summerwood.
