Hira School Song


A small school in a big world with nature all around
A stream running through and hills that surround us
Bike, scoot or run on our Hira Highway
We all get on together and it’s where we learn and play

Chorus
We’re Hira, Hira – cooperation, courtesy, kindness and respect
We’re Hira, Hira – when you come to our school it’s what you can expect
Kotahitanga

A garden for our veges, a nursery for trees
A mudbrick pizza oven for special shared teas
We’re caring and we’re friendly environmentally
And everybody knows we’re part of the community

Chorus
We’re Hira, Hira – cooperation, courtesy, kindness and respect
We’re Hira, Hira – when you come to our school it’s what you can expect
Kotahitanga
