Motto: Serve with Love
We the JMites of the School,
Stand in one accord,
Through rough and dusty path ways,
Together do we trod,
Though dreary moments assail us,
Or weakness pales our face,
Strength and courage bind us,
Never to go astray.
St. Claudine, you’re the inspirer,
Of calm and simplicity,
Your virtues be our footstool,
To strive for liberty,
Your example may we follow,
In times of adversity,
As children we implore you,
Guide us to destiny.
*Praised be Jesus and Mary Forever.*
