             SCHOOL SONG


               St. Edward Patron of our school
               And protector of our youth
               Guide us in our search for truth
               To the Holy Ghost Faithful
               Instill in us true leadership
               Model of Christian piety
               So may we always honor thee
               For all our lives to see


               The name Edwardian proudly stands
               In our country's honor roll
               Inspiring us to follow close
               Those who to great heights rose
               With prayers our battle we shall fight
               And all life's struggles win
               We shall be loyal to our school
               To our kith and kin


               However far in days to come
               Our lives may make us roam
               The closest friends will be those made
               In youth at boyhoods home
               Sing hail to Edward king and saint
               Confessor pure and chaste
               Enjoying now that heavenly bliss
               Which we soon hope to taste
