Tho’ all around has changed since her corner-stone was laid,
The spirit of Eunice has never been dismayed.
The future will not fright her, she fears nor change nor strife,
For she dwells beside the waters of wisdom and of life.

Eunice Eunice!
No other school so dear.
Oh! may she grow and prosper
From year to changing year.

And we, her children, love her, alike the big and small;
Her name and fame and honour are dear to one and all.
And love of her unites us and makes a mighty bond,
To bind the past and present and the fateful years beyond.

She bids us pull together, she bids us give and take,
And selfish aims forego when the common weal’s at stake.
In playtime and in work time, in class and on the field,
She bids us fight the battle, she warns us not to yield.

And day by day she trains us, our body mind and soul,
In fortitude and freedom, in pluck and self-control.
And when at last we leave her, ‘twill soften our regret
To feel she will not alter, and we shall not forget

For with her honour trusted her children will go forth
To meet life’s grand adventure, east, west, and south and north,
And with the torch she gave them they’ll light the darkest way,
While the love that knits them to her grows deeper day by day.
