School Prayer

Loving God we gather in your name.
Be with us in all that we do
And help us to live the Garin spirit
Through faith, justice, courage and charity

Teach us to serve with generosity
Relate to others with aroha
Promote rangimarie and act with integrity
Always encouraging new life

May we always live our motto of faith and wisdom
This we pray in the spirit of Father Garin
And our House Patrons
Through Jesus Christ,
Amen
