The Jubilee Song 
(New School’s Song)
School’s Prayer
Old School’s Song

Bright hopes did stir our founder's mind
To build a school of national pride
Where the young with gifts of many varied kinds,
will develop side by side.
Thus as loyal citizens, FSSGians learn
to excel. They have grit, they have drive,
all the world can tell. Then from all around,
let our voices sound!
FSSGians, FSSGians, play up, play up.
FSSGians, play up, play up, play up
All play the Game

In the school of life with heart and mind and hand
We strive only for the best
For this our school, for this our native land
We will stand up to the test
So with Zeal and with Zest, our lives we bend
To the task in hand, right to the end
Then from all around
Let our voices sound
FSSGians, FSSGians, Play up, play up.
FSSGians, Play up all play the game.

When in the school of life, we as adults start
This is the word that we all declare
High ideas, fair play; these are what we've learned
From teachers true and school mates dear
So with confidence and faith, our paths we tread
With the goal in mind, forging right ahead
Now from all around
Let our voices sound
FSSGians, FSSGians, Play up, Play up.
FSSGians, Play up all play the Game.



Play up, Play up, Play up Play up

Play up, Play up, Play up, Play Up

And Play the game

This is the world, that year by year

While in our place the school is set

And every one of our girls must hear

And none that hears it dares forget


This they all with a joyful mind

Bear through life like a torch in flame

And falling fling, to the host behind


Play up, Play up, Play up, Play up

Play up, Play up, Play up, Play up

And Play the game.


The following is part of the original

school song that we no longer sing


There's a breathless hush in the close tonight.

Ten to make and the match to win

A bumpy pitch and a blinding light

An hour to play and the last man in.

But 'tis not for the sake of a ribboned coat

Or the selfish hope of a season's fame

But the captain's hand on his shoulder smote

Play Up! Play Up! Play Up! Play Up!

Play Up! Play Up! FSSGians! Play Up!

And Play the game.


O God, we pray thee
Look mercifully upon all in this school

Unite us together in love,
Teach us to be good to others,
Help us day by day
To live to Thy glory
To grow in grace
And to be faithful in good works,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Amen
