The word “enthusiasm” means “God within”. Therefore it is with great enthusiasm and full confidence that God will bless and lead Uitsig High School’s learners, their parents/guardians, the educators and staff, our SGB and our community, that I, with the support of our two deputy principals Mr Jan Labuschagne and Me Leonie Lindeque, commit to my daily tasks as principal of this excellent secondary school.
Uitsig High School’s core activity remains education, which means that our daily focus is quality teaching, learning and providing ample opportunities for participation to ensure that each learner’s skills grows to ensure a future of choice and success.
Each of the Uitsig learners, our “Chillies”, is our top priority and we view the educational task of Hoërskool Uitsig’s unique and talented human potential as a privilege and sincere responsibility. Here we teach and educate from a religious perspective and we inspire daily with the practice of values such as excellence, compassion, positive thoughts, integrity and respect.
High academic standards are our criteria and each of our dynamic, informed and dedicated educators’ endeavours to create a disciplined, positive and productive learning environment in their classrooms.
Subject choices focused on the future as well as academic achievements which open up tertiary study and/or career opportunities are encouraged. On Monday afternoons we have academic afternoons as well as intervention programmes to support learners to achieve their academic goals. We strive, in a future focused manner, to achieve a 100% pass rate and even better quality results.
Cultural and sport participation make our learners balanced champions on their way to adulthood. Although top achievements are our pride and joy, the involvement and participation of each and every Chillie is our goal. We believe there is a participation- and/or supporters’ space under the Uitsig sun for every single learner. Use the numerous opportunities in leadership, entrepreneurship, sport and culture, because it encourages individual skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, showmanship and good self-confidence in our learners. Our proud international flagship is our Robotics team who for two consecutive years have competed internationally in the SA Robotics team, first in New York and then in Mexico. Crossbow training is our most recent addition to our numerous sport activities.
Thank you to our dedicated SGB for their competent role and skill in the management of our school. Parents/ guardians, you are our most valued educational partners at Uitsig. Thank you for loving your children and for your support with daily organisation, logistics, neatness, school fees, effective time management and above all motivation.
Together, with enthusiasm, let us build the future focused success story of Uitsig High School!
