Our Christian Heritage

Our school song is both a prayer and proclamation of our faith.

All:
O God, help us all day to learn more of thy world,
To find thee in parents and teachers and friends.
Help us know the right ways and follow them truly;
Let us see the light on which wisdom depends.

Chorus:
O come let us sing to the Author of Wisdom,
O come let us sing to the Father above,
And then let us thank thee for thy loving kindness;
O keep us, thy students, in knowledge and love.

Boys:
O make us thy heroes, thy young men, thy brave ones,
And let all our strength in our kindliness stay.

Girls:
O give us the beauty of true hearts and gentle;
Keep us as thy daughters, our Father, we pray.

Chorus:
O come let us sing to the Author of Wisdom,
O come let us sing to the Father above,
And then let us thank thee for thy loving kindness;
O keep us, thy students, in knowledge and love.

School Crest

CrestAnother important part of our Christian identity is our crest. The shield of Saint Thomas reminds us that a Christian’s life is ever one of praise and steadfast service to our Lord and God. The configuration of the shield is an upright spear overlaid by a carpenter’s square.

The spear, as the symbol of this apostle’s martyrdom, proclaims his resolute faith in our Lord. The square—a reminder that Thomas, too, was a carpenter—demands that each of build our life upon the foundation of the Gospel. Additionally, the story holds that Saint Thomas built a church in India with his own hands.
