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
Seën 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
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
