School song

Words and music by Mr. Michael Yates, Teacher.

Verse 1

When kids from schools around us are waking every day

Some wander round, some settle down and watch the old TV

But take a look at all of us, we've better things to do

We're out of bed and on the road, we're full of energy.


Because at Ermington West we strive the best (clap, clap)

We know we've got a job to do and do it we will (clap, clap)

At Ermington West (clap, clap) I strive my best (clap, clap)

We'll succeed as we try, ‘cause we will never say die!!' (clap, clap)

Verse 2 

And when we're with our class and looking forward to the day,

We'll settle down and listen as our teacher points the way.

It may be maths it may be dance it's really all the same,

There's no such thing as standing still, we're here to play the game!
