SLADE SCHOOL SONG

Words & Music by (George?) Leadbitter, Music Teacher (Date?)

Verse 1

OUR SCHOOL ON THE HILL STANDS OUT SO CLEAR,
IT IS THERE FOR ALL EYES TO BEHOLD,
FOR ITS FAME AND HONOUR WE SHALL CARE,
FOR ITS COLOURS OF SAXE-BLUE AND GOLD.

CHORUS

SLADE, SLADE, SLADE WE ALL ARE PROUD OF YOU,
PROUD OF YOUR COLOURS, GOLD AND SAXE-BLUE.
SLADE, SLADE, SLADE, WE ALL HONOUR YOU,
HONOUR OUR MOTTO, OUR FOREFATHERS, TOO.

Verse 2

OUR SCHOOL ON THE HILL STANDS ON A ROCK,
ITS FOUNDATIONS ARE SURELY LAID,
IT IS NAMED FROM THE PIONEER STOCK,
FROM MACANSH; FROM BARNES; AND FROM SLADE.

CHORUS

Verse 3

OUR SCHOOL ON THE HILL WILL REMAIN,
OTHER INTERESTS OUR LIVES MAY ENFOLD;
BUT OUR MEMORIES, WE WILL RETAIN,
WE’LL REMEMBER SLADE’S BLUE AND GOLD.

CHORUS
