Harbinger Centenary Song

Harbinger. Learn together side by side
Harbinger. Fly forever far and wide
Smile and look back at the friends you made
Remember all of the games you played
Here at Harbinger School

Imagine all the history
This old school has known
Think about the people
The winds of time have blown

Bombs rained down and wars were fought
Airships in the skies
Who remembers ration books
Or saw the docks on fire?

One hundred years of hopes and fears
One hundred years of laughter, tears,

Harbinger. Learn together side by side
Harbinger. Fly forever far and wide
Smile and look back at the friends you made
Remember all of the games you played
Here at Harbinger School

Look at how the river swings
Around our island home
Tugs and barges, ancient docks
Canary Wharf, the dome

Shining water everywhere
Ships bring wondrous things
By night we hear the foghorns blast
By day a school bell rings

One hundred years of hopes and fears
One hundred years of laughter, tears,

Harbinger. Learn together side by side
Harbinger. Fly forever far and wide
Smile and look back at the friends you made
Remember all of the games you played
Here at Harbinger School

Here at Harbinger School (repeat to fade)
