    History about Bergland

    At the end of 1969, during a social function at Laerskool Nelspruit, around 600 pupils and a number of teachers bade farewell to start the new school in 1970.

    Mr. FJ Coetzer, Deputy Principal of Laerskool Barberton, was appointed acting Principal of Laerskool Bergland. The school opened with 653 pupils, 22 teachers and one secretary on 1 January 1970. Mr. Coetzer was appointed Principal in 1971 and Mr. DJS Grobler was appointed the school's second principal on 1 January 1987. In July 2001, Mr CGG Lancaster began his journey as Principal. Dr. JP Hugo took up his role as the school's current Principal at the beginning of 2023.

    In 1970 the first fundraising committee was established and school uniforms and school colours were determined. The apt motto "BOU OP ROTS" as well as the name "Laerskool Bergland" was born. The first step of an immeasurable journey was taken. The future awaits and beckons, filled with so many opportunities and challenges!

    The School Anthem was written and composed by Stevie Cussons and Mrs A Coetzer designed the School Coat of Arms

    Symbolism

    Colours:

    • Brown – Represents the fertile earth
    • Orange – Represents the ripe harvest
    • Khaki      – Acts as a solid foundation for this graceful plant
    • Cream – Warmth, love, nurturing

    With these components, our children develop into an ornament for God's Kingdom.

    Already in 1970 the first School Concert takes place and the first LP sees the light of our choirs. Already from 1970 until today, the pupils of this school achieve the ideals that are deeply cherished in the hearts of parents.

    Friday, August 20, 1971, the official dedication of the school takes place. The ceremony is observed by the former Director of Education, Dr. AL Kotze. On this occasion, the name of our school was used to spell out certain virtues to the children, the adults of tomorrow viz. :

    B = Begrip; (Understanding)
    E = Eerbaarheid; (Respectability)
    R = Reëls; (Rules)
    G = Godsdienssin; (Religious Sense)
    L = Liefde; (Love)
    A = Arbeidsaamheid; (Industriousness)
    N = Nederigheid; (Humility)
    D = Diensbaarheid; (Serviceability)

    Over the years, in which many steps have been taken, this school has made its definite mark by producing its quota of high-ranking Academics and Springbok stars. Every year, the achievements of the High Schools also prove this fact.

    In the archives and the day of tomorrow lie so many precious things locked up and then the proven expression:

    "Bergland is a special school with special parents, children and selected teachers."
