We strive to prepare our children academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

The school emblem constitutes the following symbols:
- Knowledge in the Word of God and knowledge in general.
- The camel-thorn tree of the Kalahari, with its roots
in good soil and branches reaching upwards,
symbolizing growth and steadfastness.
- The sun, which is the source of light and life.
In ons land van klip en sandveld
Kalahari wyd en oop
staan 'n skool vir ons 'n tuiste
bron van kennis, lig en hoop.
Soos 'n doringboom geanker
het ons loopbaan hier begin
met die woord ons lewenskompas
toegerus die toekoms in.
Na die hoogste sal ons strewe
bly volhard en ywerig leer
Sal ons werk en groei met vreugde
in die krag van God ons Heer.

A bull was chosen as the mascot for Gobabis Gymnasium, because we are located in Cattle Country.
