It's not just a pile of old bricks

  1. It’s not just a pile of old bricks,
    Walls with a window or two.
    It’s not just a playground and bench,
    Something for children to do.
    It’s not just a bundle of books,
    There on a shelf in a row.
    It’s not just a shiny clean hall,
    Somewhere for children to go.

(Chorus)
This is my school, your school,
Somewhere that we love to be.
My school, your school,
Our school together.

  1. It’s not just a box full of games,
    There for a rainy wet day.
    It’s not just a shaker and drum,
    Something for children to play.
    It’s not just a load of grown-ups,
    Not just the learning and fun.
    It’s not just the children in class,
    Everything blends into one.

(Chorus)
This is my school, your school,
Somewhere that we love to be.
My school, your school,
Our school together,
Our school together!
