The Jindalee Way Song

Since 1966, we’ve walked in blue and gold.
Hand in hand we’ll make a stand
To care for young and old.
Together we’ll pave the way for a future bright and true.
It’s just the thing that makes us bring
Pride in all we do.
 
CHORUS:
Our future is the key
And together we’ll learn to be the best that we can be,
So stand with me:
Together at Jindalee.
 
With courage, confidence, courtesy
We show friendship, respect and loyalty.
We learn, we play the Jindalee Way
To honour our school community.
 
CHORUS:
Our future is the key
And together we’ll learn to be the best that we can be,
So stand with me:
Together at Jindalee.
CHORUS:
Our future is the key
And together we’ll learn to be the best that we can be,
So stand with me:
Together at Jindalee.
Together at Jindalee (onwards in honour).
Together at Jindalee.
