School Crest and Song
The School Crest is the embodiment of our aims and aspirations for the Geylang Methodist Schools. The Shield offers protection and reminds us of the Lord God who is our strength, our help and our shield.
Enshrined in the heart of the shield is a flaming torch formed by the letters ‘M’ and ‘S’. This symbolises the passion of GMS to seek the Light and Truth in Jesus Christ who is the Light of the World, and whose Truth will set us free.
The white 27-point starburst is inspired by our heritage when the school started with 27 pupils in 1924. This inspires us to continuously strive for pure brilliance and ingenuity grounded in our education.
The colours blue and gold frame our crest and represent heaven and earth respectively, reflecting our heavenly aspirations which are firmly grounded in our earthly realism to ‘Grow in Friendship, Body and Mind’.
In Geylang Methodist we strive
To grow in friendship, body, mind
And never fail to keep alive
The Truths of God which guide mankind.
With grateful hearts we sing the praise,
Of Geylang Methodist today
And to her glory now we raise
Our pledge of loyalty for aye
When from each other we must part
And cares of life around us press
One thing will live within each heart
The memory of G.M.S
To grow in friendship, body and mind.
As Pupils of GMS(S),
we stand as one to keep alive
the spirit of our motto:
“To grow in Friendship, Body and mind”
We pledge to be God-fearing and true,
giving regard to our parents
and those in authority;
respecting the rights of others
and showing compassion to those in need.
We vow to be honest, diligent and disciplined
and with God’s help,
we strive to give our best
for the betterment of ourselves,
and our school and our country.
