Welcome to the 50TH Anniversary of Üitenhage High , 2014
It is that institution, one of it's kind, called UITENHAGE HIGH, which has, since opening its doors in 1964, stood out as the epicentre of total education and as guardian to all stake-holders -- pupils, parents and teachers --- the community.
Transcending into a new political order,we need to take stock of ourselves, our failures, our successes, our achievements, our goals, our everything, for we have reached a period of transformation --- a period we all envisaged as a period free from oppression, racism, hatred, exploitation, corruption and social decay. We are faced with a period in which we have to transorm our attitudes, our minds, our whole personal, inner make-up, so as to adapt to new circumstances. We now have to be all the more vigilant, observant, tolerant and alert, for we are faced with new challenges not only within the school confines, but beyond that as well.
What we need to remember is that we have an added responsibility of taking charge of those children who have been entrusted into oour care, and to provide them with the best education we are capable of producing --- quality education, of which an essential dimension is the cultivation of strong moral values which will enable our charges to utilize their knowledge in a way that will bbenefit their fellow human beings and promote social progress.
This we can only achieve with true, honest commitment and deduction. In this way will we retain that position of Uitenhage High, for which it became known --- serving the community --- all the people --- mankind.
