A little flame that burns so bright wherever I may go.
Let laughter light our learning, each and every day
We spend together here, as we grow in knowledge
For our badge shows that we, are all Rising Stars
Twinkling with brightness in a sky of happiness.
Let us be the best we can, in both our work and play
Let our values always stand, in what we do and say
Let Fellowship be our guide every single day
La Lucia, La Lucia.
