PLTCI’s Hymn

As the sun rises in the east

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

(Repeat Refrain)

PLT College Incorporated

With a simple and humble epithet

Commitment to service and excellence

For the glory of the Divine Providence
