School Song
EX MONTIBUS ROBUR

The mountains all around us
UHS : "Her" mountains etc
Shall never tower in vain
Long, long ago they bound us
UHS : Long, long ago "she" bound us
In strong affection's chain

UHS: With strong affection's chain
They gave us strength and beauty
UHS : "See now, I give you beauty,
In rock and slender pine
UHS : And strength of oak and pine
With them we share the duty
UHS : Take them and share my duty
To watch the border line
UHS : Watch ye the Border Line

Shout it out
UHS Boys : Shout it out, lift the skies,
Stamp your feet my boys.
Girls: Sweetly let your voices rise
Song means more than noise
All : Up to Heaven "Umtali" fling
"Umtali" "Umtali" sing. all
Lift the skies
That every heart shall stir
As we hear our anthem rise
Ex Montibus Robur

Though north & south we'll scatter
To join the stream of time
UHS : On the hurrying streams of time,
True be our love, no matter
What other hills we climb.
Though outward bravely turning

UHS: Though outwards bravely turning (note the s on outwards)
New roads to pioneer,
Our hearts shall ne'er cease burning
When this refrain we hear.

UHS : When the old refrain we hear.
UHS : Chorus as above
Boys:
Girls:
All:
Shout it out
Lift the skies
Every heart shall stir
As we hear our anthem rise
Ex Montibus Robur

Up to heaven the echoes fling
Umtali all, Umtali sing

In Memory of Pilot Officer T. Ryan killed in a air accident on 4 February 1963
