School Song

This is our school, where we work and play.
This is our school, we try our best each day.
Sorrento, a place by the sea,
Sorrento belongs to me.

Be happy in all that you do,
Be friendly, be kind, be true.
True to self, true to school,
True to life’s Golden Rule,
Helping others the whole day through.

This is our school, where we work and play.
This is our school, we try our best each day.
Sorrento a place by the sea.
Sorrento belongs to me.

Recorded by Mrs Carter, Mrs Clark and the 2014 School Choir

School Creed

As I start this day,
Help me to live the friendly way.
Let me be kind.
Let me be true.
Trying my best in all that I do.
