THE PARTING OF THE WAYS: A song that many teachers have asked Peter to write. Intended for use at those important end-of-year Graduation celebrations & Masses, as students move from Primary to Secondary School (or from Secondary to the wider world).

The verses are sung by the graduating students while the choruses are sung by the farewelling community: ie. teachers, parents, younger students.

The full song has four verses and choruses, plus a special chorus with different words, to be sung by the departing students. Verses 1& 2 below.

VERSE 1:
Moving on into another stage of life
From the people and the places known so well.
Farewell to all the people who helped us to this day-
Farewell, it is the parting of the ways.

CHORUS:  Go well. Go well.
On your passionate journey go well.
We'll miss you and we wish you every blessing
As you go upon your way
God will walk with you today.

VERSE 2: Looking back we see the pathway of the years,
All the learning and the growing- sometimes tears;
Farewell to all the good friends who go a different way
farewell to the friends that here will stay.

CHORUS:  Go well. Go well.
On your passionate journey go well... etc.
