Edgeworth Public School Song
C. Leane and M. Scully
Wide open spaces, lined with gum trees full and free.
Playgrounds filled with laughter, together you and me.
We're leaders of the future, working hand in hand,
Together, making a difference for our nation and our land.
With respect and fairness, and responsibility.
Desire to do well, the motto we declare.
Proud to fly our flag,
We are Edgeworth Public School.
With colours dancing red and black, beneath the golden sun,
The stars are where our goals are and we'll reach them one by one.
Learning beyond our potential, achieving quality,
Partners in our strengths, supporting community.
With care, integrity and cooperation.
