Principal's Welcome

We want to welcome you to our “new” website and also to our school, a school who does things in a different way. Gobabis Gymnasium is a small school set in the east of Namibia in the mecca of the tastiest meat and a community enthusiasm that only a few communities can boast with. As a result we have a specific type of child that wants to do things for themselves, and those who join us as new students quickly fall into the same mindset. Gobabis Gymnasium, with its 300 leaners, is competent, proud, and operate like a school with 800 learners and a very involved community of parents. Here we are focused on the creation and utilization of opportunities, through which we then develop initiative, with the bonus always being the sweet taste of personal growth. Our Heavenly Father leads us daily and we are also based on God’s Word. Programs like our Character Transformation and Womanhood programs as well as the opportunity to talk one-on-one makes the atmosphere comfortable yet strict. This webpage offers a small overview about who and what we are, and I invite you to come see -  for yourself – as to who and what we are. Feel free to converse with our ambassadors – the learners. We look forward to welcome you to Gobabis Gymnasium for the promotion of a peaceful and different development opportunity.

T. Tripodi, Principal
