The School Crest has a Red Dragon on the left and a Chinese Junk on the right.

Our school colours are Red and Green.

The Red Dragon stands for courage, endeavour and the everlasting fire of leadership.

The Chinese Junk symbolises seeking and making progress and the ongoing quest for peace and success.


Our School Anthem:

In eighteen-eighty five, our founder Gan Eng Seng

Conceived the noble aim for a new breed of men

He started a free school for boys who were poor

To give them a chance to be something more

To teach them to learn, play and live at the fore

To give of their best and say forever more

( Chorus )

Onward, Onward

Gan Eng Seng for Gessians

Onward, Onward

Gessians for Gan Eng Seng

 

The story of our school is a history of change

But truth, faith and vigour survived circumstances strange

And true to the meaning of the signs on our crest

A dragon for fire of leadership

And ship for seeking and making progress

In word and deed we vow forever more

( Chorus )

Onward, Onward

Gan Eng Seng for Gessians

Onward, Onward

Gessians for Gan Eng Seng

Composed by: Mr R.C. Scharenguivel


Our School Creed:

This is our school

Let peace dwell here

Let there be contentment

Let love abide here

Love of one another

Love of mankind

Love of life itself

And love of God

Let us remember

That as many hands build a house

So many hearts make a school

by Mr. P.F. Aroozoo
