The mission of Hamilton Primary School is to provide a 
to children living primarily in the natural feeder area of the 
possible in the pursuance of EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION.

In the middle or our city stands a building that we know
It's a building that we love in many ways.
Its beauty and its splendour tell a story of their own
Filled with treasure of long forgotten days.
It's our school that we've learnt to love and care for
It's a building that is now our second home.
Within its caring walls there's always love and laughter
Like a friend that's always there when you're alone.
Hamilton, someday we'll have to leave you
To move ahead and make our dreams come true.
But when we do we know that we'll be richer than before
No matter where we go you'll always be there.
With help from God above you'll put us right where we go wrong
And your motto is a special part of every day we live,
Do for others, and we know that we'll be strong.
Everybody needs a refuge when he feels afraid and tired
And a shoulder to cry on when in pain.
When he needs a loving word or a hand to help him right
You are there with your guidance once again.
You will always be remembered by your pupils, young and old,
And the wisdom that we gained will never fade.
While we walk these corridors, we'll wear the blue and gold
And be proud to uphold your dignity and grace.
