School Song


The lyrics of the School Song were written by the Principal of the School, Mr. S. Ratnagopal in July 1970.

 

We are happy boys and girls at school
Our days with knowledge bright and full
To work, to serve without a sigh
E'er we maintain our standards high.

 

Chorus

Yio Chu Kang our very own
The seeds of learning here are sown
We're youths of character keen to serve
The name of our school we'll ever preserve.

 

Our Yio Chu Kang School forever
Success in our endeavour
Onwards, upward we will strive
To serve our Singapore with pride
