Glen Iris Primary School Song
By Marg Gleadall, 1995
Shining in Australia’s sun,Purple and gold, we are the ones,We are Glen Iris,We are Glen Iris.
We are always the first to say,
We are proud of our school each day,‘Cause it’s Glen Iris,Yes, it’s Glen Iris.
As the school year rolls alongWe’d like to say this in our song,Our school is a wonderful place to beGlen Iris is for me!
Win or lose we are proud to say,We believe in honesty and fair play.We’ve had sadness, laughter and fun,That’s why we sing as one.
VERSE 3 (sung by Year 6 at the end of each year):
The years have flown, we must go onTo a new school, ‘cause we are grown.But in our hearts we’ll remember thatGlen Iris gave us a start.
The National Anthem: "Advance Australia Fair"
Australians all let us rejoice,For we are young and free;We've golden soil and wealth for toil;Our home is girt by sea;Our land abounds in nature's giftsOf beauty rich and rare;In history's page, let every stageAdvance Australia Fair.In joyful strains then let us sing,Advance Australia Fair.
Beneath our radiant Southern CrossWe'll toil with hearts and hands;To make this Commonwealth of oursRenowned of all the lands;For those who've come across the seasWe've boundless plains to share;With courage let us all combineTo Advance Australia Fair.In joyful strains then let us sing,Advance Australia Fair.
