Ko te kura o Bairds Mainfreight, e tū ana
Kei Ōtara mātou, e noho ana
Ko Te Puke ō Tara, te maunga kōhatu
Ko Tāmaki te awa, e rere ana
Ko Tara Te Irirangi te rangatira e!

Ko Ngāti Ōtara te iwi nei,
Ko Tāmaki Makaurau te hapori whānui,
Mai ngā hau e whā, haere mai kia kotahi ai.
Mā te mahi pai, ka ora ai te iwi,

Tātou whāia te iti kahurangi e!

Bairds Mainfreight is our school,
Ōtara is our home,
Ōtara is our ancient mountain,
Tāmaki is our river that runs through Otara,
Our chief is Tara Te Irirangi!

Ōtara is our community,
Auckland is our wider community,
People from all areas, come together and unite as one.
Through hard work the people and community will flourish,

Children pursue your dreams!
