A Brief Outline

The inaugural meeting of St. Peter’s College Old Boys’ Union took place on 15th October 1927, presided over by the First Rector, very. Rev. Fr. D.J. Nicholas Perera O.M.I. It is worth recalling that the idea of forming themselves into a union came from the Old Boys themselves, a few months after the name change from St. Joseph’s College South to St. Peter’s College was officially promulgated on 2nd April 1927 and has been actively supporting College since then.

Chorus :
Lend a heart and lend a hand,
And lift the flag on high !
Let it’s glorious colours give
A greeting to the sky !
Golden gleam and silver sheen
And Blue that crowns the world !
Set the Flag a flying. Boys
Keep the flag unfurled.

 

1.While in boyhood, here we linger,
Mid a garden’s fragrnt flowers,
Who shall dare to point the finger
When such joys are ours,
Work enduring, play alluring
Fill our happy hours.
Ills all – curing, health ensuring,
In St. Peter’s bowers !
and our Flag is floating proudly,
Let us sing its praises loudly !

 

Lend a heart…

 

2. “Strong as rocks” we’ll meet the surges,
Of the stormy sea of fate,
Ever led where conscience urges,
Towards a nobler state:
“Strong as rocks”, in play or study
Meeting friend and foe,
Fields of Culture, fields all muddy.
Watch us as we grow !
See, Our Banner’s floating proudly
Let us sing its praises loudly !

 

Lend a heart…

 

3. “Strong as rocks”, we’ll play the game Boys
Ever fighting for the rights,
Never stain the College name, Boys:
Keep the flag in sight:
Lit us march, eves front, together
Helping those in need,
“Mid Life’s foul or fairer weather,
We’ll be friends indeed,
While our Flag is floating proudly,
Let us sing its praises loudly !

 

Lend a heart…
