1. PRAYER FOR MORNING ASSEMBLY

Dear God,

You are the Giver of all good things,
thank you, for the blessing of this new day.
Give me you grace
            To live well today,
            To know you, a little better,
            To do my work, a little more diligently,
            To serve my fellowmen, a little more lovingly
Help me,
            To make today, a day of progress
             To be of help, and an example,
            To all whom I meet,
             To bring comfort, to those in sorrow,
             And strength to those, who are tempted
Strengthen me,
            To give courage, to those who are afraid
             Guidance to those, who do not know, what to do,
            To bring cheer to those, who are discouraged,
And encouragement to those, who are depressed.

Amen

6. SCHOOL ANTHEM

Raised on high we lift our Carmel banner
Rally around, pace the ground together,
All unite to lift our flag on high
And pledge true loyalty this day till we die.
Onward to the goal we go,
Till we reach the far eternal shore,
Carmel's children all unite
All stand for the right,
All evil forces fight.
Carmel be our beacon light
In this dark and wild tempestuous night
Be our radiant guiding star,
o'er life's troubled sea.
Till dawns eternity
