Esperance State School gets Electric power connected.
- Esperance! With your heart-shaped
- Port that stand alone!
- Rise you out of yesterday,
- Come into your own!
- Crowds have gathered on your strand,
- Circling seagulls screech
- Heralding through all the land
- Safe-for-children beach!
- Now the pile has driven been
- You must from your trance
- Eager, hopeful, cheerful, keen
- In your great advance!
- In the race you must not stand
- Never slack one day.
- You’ll at last your place command.
- Beauteous Esperance Bay!
- – P.A.E.
