SCHOOL HYMN: PERSEVERANDO VINCIMUS
Lyrics by: Gordon E. Jenneker 1970
Music by: Keith N. Jenneker

Chorus:

Perseverando Vincimus
Who perseveres o’ercomes.
Thus with hearts rejoicing now we sing,
We are what you have wrought
Your treasures we’ve laid by,
Till justice and right prevail
And all the world is made a better place,
We’ll persevere, Dear Uitenhage High.

Verse 1:

To you our dearest school,
Our thanks to thee,
For minds like polished jewel,
For hearts so free,
We’ll fight until we die
Dear Uitenhage High.

Chorus:

Verse 2:

May we e’er cherish,
Mem’ries of you,
Lives without blemish,
To lofty ideals true.
Let freedom be our cry,
Dear Uitenhage High.

Chorus:

Verse 3:

For causes just we strive;
To God we pray,
His values keep alive,
At work or play,
We’ll laud you to the sky,
Dear Uitenhage High.

Chorus:
