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.
