Pre-Preparatory Emblem; Written by Marion Brown (Principal) at age 8 years
Knowledge and wisdom is something you will find.
A precious being of our children’s mind.
A dove with a twig flying away.
Is a bird that learns new things each day.
Building their home with love and care.
Is something we really all could share.
Children to you ‘little birds’ we have found.
Will grow to be wise, happy and sound.
