Lidcombe Public School Songs

At Lidcombe Public School we sing two songs at assemblies and important events during the year.  Below are the words to the National Anthem and our school song which we encourage you to learn and join in with on these occasions.

Advance Australia Fair

(words composed by Peter Dodds McCormick)

Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free.
We've golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history's page let every stage
Advance Australia Fair,
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair.

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We'll toil with hearts and hands
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share,
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In Joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair.


Lidcombe Public School School Song

(sung to 'Click Go The Shears' - Words by Mary Peacock)


We are from Lidcombe School   (Clap! Clap! Clap!)

Learning is our key and we're never looking back

Forward to our future, we're ahead of the rest

Learning in harmony is what we do best!

Verse 1

 Our students come from many different lands

United on Australian soil  is where we choose to stand

Respecting one another and everyone we meet

Learning in harmony makes our lives complete


 Verse 2

 Always taking care, to be responsible

Safety is for everyone, that's our golden rule

Learning in harmony, where everyone's a mate

That's the type of attitude that makes our school great!


Verse 3

Forward is our motto, its forward that we go

What our future holds for us we'll never really know

But we know that we'll be proud, of who we've come to be

Citizens of the modern world living in harmony!


What our school song means


Forward - Our official school motto.  The concept of always moving forward and a relentless commitment to improvement.

Learning in Harmony - Our unofficial school motto.  Acknowledgement of our school's capacity to work together as a team taking into account diversity within the team such as religion, culture, ability, disability, gender, age.  Students, staff and the community working together.

'United on Australian Soil ' - We have 90% students from a language background other than English in our school.  The choice of traditional Australian music and the words 'united on Australian soil' acknowledge our Australian identity whilst still acknowledging the diversity of our student population.

Learning, respect, safety - The keys to expected student behaviour at Lidcombe ie 'Being Green'

'Citizens of the modern world' - The type of future citizens we hope our students will become as a result of their education at Lidcombe Public School
