As the baby rose to his feet
So a flower blooms from its bud
To take a peep of the land.
As the stars are shining in the sky
Lighting paths at every mile
So a school opens in every heart
To people of every walk in life.
This is PLTC, prouder as can be
Soaring like eagles, roaring like a sea
Simple beginning and is now shining
PLTC flies all through the sky
Like a tree that bears more fruit
Tendered by hands with skills and hard work
So a school that offers you the best
That one could ever wish and every crave
PLT College Incorporated
With a simple and humble epithet
Commitment to service and excellence
For the glory of the Divine Providence
PLTC FLIES ALL THROUGH THE SKY
