Welcome to York High School
Our Theme for 2020
"Integrity Has No Need Of Rules"
When Albert Camus wrote this profound sentence, he was, of course, considering the condition of government and Mankind. However, it is a beautiful consideration when taken in school context. Imagine a school where rules do not have to be enforced because everyone associated with the school is capable of living within the bounds of what they know to be right. Learners are enthused and focussed on their activities; teachers work hard to make a difference in the lives of their learners; support staff are efficient but also people-centred and parents more than meet their obligations with the understanding that they play a critical role in the true education of their children.
In South Africa today, more than ever, we need citizens of integrity, citizens who do what is right, not because someone else says so but because as a fundamental of our humanity we only become whole people when our actions, thoughts and words are in harmony with our souls.
May 2020 be a year where we pay attention to our souls and may that propel York High forward into the new decade with a positive and vibrant vision.
