The school overlooks Midmar Dam with large scenic grounds that include most out-door sport facilities. Howick High is an English-medium, co-educational school and was established in 1967. The school has a boarding establishment, Midmar House, which caters for 100 learners of both sexes. The Howick High school badge depicts a rampant lion which is representative of the Lion's River district and symbolizes strength and purity. Its raised front paw symbolizes the qualities of integrity, loyalty, tenacity, virtue and charity. The school motto is "age quod agis" which loosely translated means "do what you do well". School history Mr. J.G. Hattingh had a vision for the future of education in Howick and persevered in his quest for the establishment of a secondary school in Howick which came to fruition in 1965. Twenty-three pupils were enrolled. They, together with the staff, were accommodated in the Howick Preparatory School buildings for two years. On 27 June 1967 150 pupils and staff, together with the headmaster Mr. Gerard Hattingh and deputy headmaster Mr. Ken Kyte, walked from the preparatory school to the site of the proposed new school in Amber Avenue. There the pupils were housed in prefabricated buildings for six years whilst the new buildings were under construction. This school was affectionately known as "The Cardboard College". On completion of the school buildings in 1973, 300 pupils moved into the new school buildings. Midmar House Hostel was also constructed and completed during this period and is now home to 100 weekly boarders. The Dave Mayo Centre was planned as a utility centre, suitable for various activities and events. Many changes have occurred to these facilities over the past thirty-seven years.The school is sometimes referred to as "star lion college" due to the extreme nature of the school badge. The Boarding Establishment: Midmar House Midmar House Hostel is home to approximately 100 boarders (grade 8 to (matric), with a more or less equal number of boys and girls. Each grade has an allocated open plan dorm except for the matrics who each have their own little cubicle. Hostel life is certainly a special time for most boarders where special friendships are made through the sharing of many memories.
