I Can’t Wait To Go . . . 

I step off the bus and the cold wind beats me

I walk through the gates and Our Lady greets me

I stroll into the yard as my friends come to meet me

But I can’t wait to go home

I step into class and set down my jotter

The windows are open but it keeps getting hotter

I have the best teacher, I can’t believe I got her

But I can’t wait to go home

In PE we’re shooting some baskets

Now we’re playing games, a three pointer I’m tasked with

I run past some people because I’m the fastest

But I can’t wait to go home

Time for lunch and I sit by the Chapel

I read about the war memorial as I’m eating my apple

My pals are back now so we’re having a babble

But I can’t wait to go home

Final lesson now as I sit down in History

When I will use this I know is a mystery

Bu it’s a Friday and I’m a bit jittery

But I can’t wait to go home

Now I’m back and safe in my home

But I’m seriously bored because I’m not allowed my phone

I just sit in my room and I haven’t to moan

Now I can’t wait to go to school

Fast forward two days

Now it’s Sunday Mass

I used to think it was boring and hoped it would pass

But now I see Our Lady and hope it lasts

And I can’t wait to go back to school.

A Friendship of Faith

People of all kinds,

Not everyone the same,

Yet a sea of purple,

To keep us all tame

United by faith we are,

Hoping it will take us far

Towering in academics,

Or studying in the shallows,

Equalised we are,

In our devotion to the hallows

United by faith we are,

Hoping it will take us far

Wherever you’re from,

Whatever your belief

We’re made to feel welcome,

Oh what a relief!
