On this will the spirit survive,
that we are building each
days of our lives.

Striving to retain visions,
searching for elusive goals.

Never losing hope for progress,
ever seeking strength of soul.


Years spent here are so few,
to fulfill what we'd hoped to do.

Friends remain as a sign,
that we are linked to St. Mark's
through time.

Never losing hope for progress,
ever seeking strength of soul.

Motto: "Nisi Dominus" was adopted as the school motto.

The motto is a summary of the Latin translation of Psalms 27. 'nisi Dominus aedificaverit donum in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem frustra vigilavit qui custodit'

Meaning "unless the Lord builds the house, they work on a useless thign who build it; unless the Lord guards the community, he keeps watch in vain who guards it".
