Lyrics by LA BOCA SCHOOL SONG Music by
A. M. PARCHMENT Mrs. HELEN BAKER.


Where the ships of many nations Sail across the narrow land, Where the waters, so pacific, Gently kiss the tropic strand, There you'll find our junior high school With its wealth of life's best joys, Dealing out its stores of learning To a crowd of girls and boys.

REFRAIN:

Alma Mater, proud of thy name are we, Happiest on the Isthmus, thus must it ever Le Fanned by the faithful trade winds, warmed by the tropic sun, O sing forever our junior high school, The pride of the Zone!

Children of the canal builders, Heirs to tested brawn ad brain, Offspring of that gallant army, Peacetime heroes of the Main, Sing the praises of your fathers. Emulate their deeds sublime. Guided by your Alma Mater, Be the heroes of your time.

OUR SCHOOL

A school in a village, not far from the sea,
Is built on a spot that's so cool and lovely. From north, io the south, to the east, to the west, Our Junior High School 'of La Boca is best. The salt breezes give her the strength of the sea;
The moon paints such pictures as seldom you'll see; The warmth of the sunlight increases her charm;
Soft waves ripple round her with welcoming arm. Our dear Alma Mater, our well-loved school,
Renowned on the Isthmus, though rigid thy rule, We gratefully thank you for benefits got;
For those noble teachings that fell to our lot. Tomorrow as classmates we'll not meet again.
We leave our classrooms with hearts full of pain. We breathe a soft prayer for teachers, once nigh; We wipe salty tears and depart with a sigh.

IN MEMORIAL


While, today, we, the Class of 1940, exult in the
progress of our Canal Zone schools in general and of the La Boca School in particular, our joy is marred by a somber tinge as we reflect upon the name of SA UEL KITSON WALTERS, the first principal of the La Boca Junior High School,'and one of the pioneers in education
on the Canal Zone.:
The late Mr. Walters began his service in the Canal
Zone schools in the year 1907 and continued faithfully and, consistently up to January, 1937, when he resigned to enjoy the twilight of a noble life in the land of his
birth, Jamaica, B.W.I.
His service went farther than the classroom and
touched many phases of community life. His personality has made a lasting impression on all those with whom
he came in contact.
May he rest in peace!
