Everybody in Merlin College is so happy

because of the diversity

and if you ever forget about what you

really mean just turn to your culture to guide you

find out what you’re made off and see we

are one great big family.


We have equality in this community and

we’ll be there

and everyone will be respected

we will raise the flag and fulfil the plan in our school

Don’t ever doubt the master plan in Merlin.
