SYAS Motto & School Song


Motto: Thy Word is Truth

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

Psalm 119:105

The Word of God contained in the Bible reveals the truth about God, humanity and human destiny. We take the Word as the true guide to life.


School Song

On the isle of Singapore
There is opened wisdom’s door
In a school that we love dear
Love it more from year to year.

Chorus: May God bless you our dear School
As you teach His Golden Rule
To your aims may we be true
O! SYA School we love you.

It is here we learn each day
How to walk along life’s way
And in body, mind and soul
Grow to manhood – clean and whole.

May the lessons that we learn
And the knowledge we shall earn
Help us wise and humble be
As we serve humanity.

Lyrics by Margaret Tan, MD (July 1973)
Music by Beryl Mamanua M M (August 1973)
