  • I attended this school in 1969, and I still remember a song that we would sing:
    We are the children from 29 you've heard so much about, the people come and stare at us when ever we go out. We're noticed for our wisdom in everything we do, most everybody like us, we hope you like us too. As we go marching and the band begins to P L A Y, you can hear them saying that the children from 29 are on their way, horaay!
