The Honourable Eric Werge Hamber was born April 21, 1879 in Winnipeg and died January 10, 1960 in Vancouver.

We are proud and honoured that our school, which was officially opened on December 5, 1962, is named after this exemplary Canadian. His outstanding leadership and achievement in scholarship, sports and service to his community serve as a worthy model for each student.

Our school colours, maroon and blue, were the competitive racing colours for Eric Hamber's race horses.

Eric Hamber Secondary School's motto in Latin, "Respice, Aspice, Prospice" (pronounced res-pee-kay, as-pee-kay, pros-pee-kay) means: "Look to the past, Look to the present, Look to the future"
