Location

The school was founded in 1955 on the site of the former Prinshof Primary School (corner Du Toit and Dr Savage streets) near the city centre. The school moved from the city centre to Franzina Street in Roseville in 1979. The old buildings made the news after 6 July 1991 when they were bombed by members of the AWB.

Motto

The school motto is Levabo oculos ("I will lift [my] eyes" in Latin). The old school anthem was based on Psalm 121 which starts with "I to the hills will lift my eyes" in the Scottish Psalter. "Levabo oculos" is the incipit of the traditional Latin version of this psalm: Levabo oculos meos in montes unde veniet auxilium mihi.

  • School Anthem

    I to the hills will lift mine eyes,
    from whence doth come mine aid.
    My safety cometh from the Lord,
    who heav'n and earth hath made.

    Thy foot he'll not let slide, nor will
    he slumber that thee keeps.
    Behold, he that keeps Israel,
    he slumbers not, nor sleeps.

    The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade
    on thy right hand doth stay:
    The moon by night thee shall not smite,
    nor yet the sun by day.

    The Lord shall keep thy soul; he shall
    preserve thee from all ill.
    Henceforth thy going out and in
    God keep for ever will.

    I to the Hills, tune or Tune. Sung here I to the hills.

    School song

    Strong as the eagles that master the sky
    Firm as our mountains, never to die
    Oh Hillview High we salute your name
    Proudly then we will sing about your fame

    Then to the hills,
    We'll lift our eyes
    Steadfast and striving for the prize

    We are committed to finish this race
    Winning's our aim losing's no disgrace
    Using our potential is what its all about

    So from the stands you will hear us shout:
    Go Hillview Go! You're going to win!
    Come on Hillview you're nearly in!
