together in freedom and love
Together In Freedom and Love is the school song and was composed and arranged
by Mark Clement Pollard, Head of Composition at the Victorian College of the
Arts. This song was composed in 2002 and was first performed publicly at the
College Assembly on Monday, 17 February, 2003.
The song has three verses and a chorus which celebrates our College's
cultural diversity, our proud history and school colours, our confidence in the
future, our commitment to peace and harmony and our enlightenment due to the
presence of the Holy Spirit.
The College motto 'Pray and Persevere' recurs throughout the song as the
chorus is repeated after each verse.
Together in Freedom and Love
We come from many places
and sing in one
the heart of our community,
for all to rejoice.
Our past a road of honour,
paved in blue and
with strength, courage and dignity,
we live through our deeds.
Enlightened by the Spirit,
our future is
to fill the world around us,
with peace and harmony.
For we are St Monica's,
we pray and
and step ahead together,
in freedom and love.
Written and Composed by Mark
