Sciennes School Song

BELIEVE • ACHIEVE

In the year of 1892

Our school first opened its doors
And the girls and boys from all around
They arrived in hordes and hordes
CHORUS
Aim high let your ambitions fly
Always be the best you can be
Believe. Achieve in all you do
And happy you will be
From slates and chalks and inks and nibs
To whiteboards, computers and pens.
You never know what your future will bring
But friends will still be friends.

CHORUS

Aim high let your ambitions fly
Always be the best you can be
Believe. Achieve in all you do

And happy you will be

Our school it is a happy one
For children and adults too
And so it will continue on
As each person begins anew.
Words by Mrs Ford

Music by Mrs McVicker

Some of our former pupils may also remember the Spelling mnemonic for Sciennes: 

School Children In Edinburgh Need Nice Easy Sums

Does anyone recall their teachers using it or when it first came into use?
