School Song


THE TAMPINESIAN SCHOOL SONG
(Lyrics and music score written in 1986 by Mr John De Souza)
 
Green and Gold, Green and Gold
We will keep our school flag flying
Green and Gold, Green and Gold
We will keep our school flag flying
Keep our school flag Green and Gold up high
 
Let education be our top priority
For the betterment of self
Always outward looking forward thinking
Think not of oneself
Think not of oneself
 
Working as a team
We’ll steer our way upstream
It’s not easy but we’ll try
We will give our best to Tampines
‘tis here our future lies
Here our future lies

Creed

The Tampines tree is one of the most valuable timber trees in Peninsula Malaysia. It is known for its strength, suppleness and durability.
