School Badge And Motto

The symbolism of the crest is this: if a learner studies the opened book of knowledge,

the gates of success will open to such a learner.

The rising sun alludes to collected knowledge,

which brings enlightenment in a learner's life - hence the motto:


Dowerglen HighSchool Song

On a hill in Edenvale

Stands a school so proud

Learners with desire

To sing a song out loud

It's a song of inspiration

For all who have a dream

To grow in self-fulfilment

And do it as a team!

We strive to learn, to work and win

Our future to secure

In hope we stand to build our land

In faith we will endure

So join us as we conquer

The challenges we face

Together as a family

We do it all in grace

Oh Dowerglen we honour

Our teachers, friends, ourselves!

Dowerglen! Dowerglen!

Our future is our choice

Dowerglen! Dowerglen!

Let's make a joyful noise!


National anthem of South Africa

Nkosi sikelel' Afrika,
Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo,
Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
Nkosi sikelela thina,
Lusapho lwayo

Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso
O fedise dintwa la matshwenyeho
O se boloke (Ntate),
O se boloke
Setjhaba sa Heso
Setjhaba sa South Afrika
(South Afrika)

Uit die blou van onse hemel
Uit die diepte van ons see
Oor ons ewige gebergtes
Waar die kranse antwoord gee

Sounds to call to come together
And united we shall stand
Let us live and strive for freedom
In South Africa our land.
