Alexandra Perry-Dalton, Grade 4, Somerville House
Magnificent Jacarandas are flowering all around.
One fine specimen stands proudly in my school grounds.
I have a photo of it that I will take with me.
Along with 'Honours Before Honours' my school motto which helps me see,
That although I'm leaving, I will not be gone forever
And I promise that I'll never forget this school and all the friends I have made.
But if my wish is granted, I will return,
Having done my best to learn.
And that Jacaranda I know will still stand with its flowers so bright
Bringing happy memories long after sight.
