Our School Prayer
This is our school.
Let peace dwell here.
Let the rooms be full of contentment
Let love abide here.
Love of one another
Love of mankind
Love of life itself and love of God.
And let us remember
So many hands build a house
So many hearts make a school. Amen

Prayer at the end of the day
God our Father, we come to say
Thank you for your love today.
Thank you for my family
And all the friends you give to me.
Guard me in the dark of night
And in the morning please send your light.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death.
