Our motto is "Forward", our name La Rochelle.
It's a spirit and a name that to people can tell
how basely the right
had to bow before might,
yet it kept a good heart with a spirit aflame
that conquered defeat in the Lord's holy Name.
We strive to go forward, we aim high and well,
sweet sounds still our name:
La Rochelle, La Rochelle.
Written by Jan F E Cilliers and in 1922 composed by M L de Villiers.
