Shortly About our History
About our logo
The school’s monogram and motto- ‘THINK, LEARN, LEAD’- was adopted in 1987.
The shield, which forms part of the monogram, is symbolic of achievement and protection.
The eagle symbolises the power of the school in bringing knowledge [through the book] to the learner.
The torch is symbolic of enlightenment. It leads one from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge.
The rays from the torch symbolise spreading light, which eliminates darkness. This is a symbol of the triumph of knowledge over ignorance.
We are also proud of BUYANI NGCOBO who has brought honour to the school through being a gold medalist in the 1500m and 5000m race at the Midmar Dam Aquatic Championships. Buyani is also a renowned lifesaver.
Our Mission Statement
We shall strive towards the achievement of a high degree of excellence among all our learners, and to ensure that our daily interactions with all stakeholders reflect the fine traditions of the cultures of society at large so that we will always discriminate between righteousness and evil, and act accordingly.
To become the leading school in KwaZulu-Natal through the provision of quality education to all learners who attend our school, and to offer excellent service delivery to our clients through effective and coherent leadership among all stakeholders.
Effingham Secondary, in keeping with its Vision and Mission Statement, is committed to a culture of learning and teaching. Like many public schools in our beloved country, it has of late become susceptible to the changes in learner conduct. This has become something of a challenge for the school. But it is a challenge that we shall rise to meet.
