School song

By Susan Liebert

Verse 1

We have a splendid school 
We think it's cool 
And we love coming to it (clap hands once) 
Here in Bob's Farm 
It's a happy place 
With lots of space 
Whichever way you view it  (clap hands once) 
Here in Bob's Farm 
Where the Tilligerry Creek 
Runs along close by 
Ibises and Kookaburras in the sky 
We love our vegie garden 
Which we all work hard in 
Here in Bob's Farm…

Verse 2

We have our teachers too 
Who help us through 
In everything we're learning (clap hands once) 
We study hard…
Our uniform of red and green 
Makes it easy to be seen (clap hands once) 
When we're in the yard… 
"If it's to be, it's up to me" 
Is what we all believe in 
We do our best… 
Although we're small 
We all stand tall 
And we all pull together 
Here in Bob's Farm 
Our values make the rules 
Here in Bob's Farm School!!
