It all started with a hope and a dream
A dream to help others succeed

As I look back
I can’t believe
How quickly time has traversed on
It was just yesterday
That I entered E.A. Janari’s Gates
Then known as Pioneer Primary

I began my journey
Straight from Teacher’s College
I worked with my former teachers
Side by side
I met many new colleagues
By and by

As time went by
New faces popped in
Old faces popped out
Soon, I will make my way
Through those gates
This time it won’t be the same
I’ll leave as an educator
If I should enter again
It would be as a spectator

Through the years
Many waves have I encountered
Some I managed to ride
Others I let pass by
Some were too difficult for me slide
I let them slide by…

I do look forward to this new beginning
In my life
As I say goodbye to a part of my old life
I’ll leave my wealth of experience
In the hands of capable individuals
And memories of the Bonteheuwel youth

They will carry the torch
I’ll leave behind with a smile
As I slowly move towards
A new journey and a new ride
A new chapter begins
A new song for me to sing
Fare the well E.A. Janari Primary
Fare the well Stalwart and Pioneer
Of Pioneer Primary
