Windhoek Gymnasium Matric 2022

You had a bear celebrity with a special bear identity, who helped you forget your worries and your strife. Matric is an important and often stressful year, but it’s also a time to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

Your school’s teddy shared in the experience! 


Let’s hear it from your head girl and boy 

Head girl: Mioné Garbers 

Being part of Windhoek Gymnasium for the past 12 years has been a great privilege and being the head girl for 2022 is the cherry on top. Not only did my school provide me with exceptional opportunities in sport, culture and academics, it also prepared me for my future. The hard work of the teachers ensures that I will be able to go to a world-class university and be successful in my future career. I will forever be thankful for every teacher who helped me – from writing my first word to being able to complete AS Levels in matric. 

The building blocks that Windhoek Gymnasium provided me with is one of the main reasons that I am able to chase my dreams today. The Christian environment I experienced at my school made me into the person I am today. I am grateful for the memories and friends that Windhoek Gymnasium gave me. I never believed that time flies until this year. I want to tell my fellow Gimmies to embrace every moment, because it really goes by fast and you can honestly not get a better place to spend that time than at Windhoek Gymnasium. Thank you for 12 fantastic years and thank you for the trust that you put in me to be your head girl! 


Head boy: Bergran Jensen 

I have been in Windhoek Gymnasium since Grade 8 (2018) and I still remember the first day when I entered the school premises and had the instant feeling of being part of a lovely family. Although it took a while for me to adapt, as I was in a German school before, Windhoek Gymnasium has moulded and shaped me into the leader that I have become today. 

I feel like I have become better at getting to know myself as this school creates a very comfortable environment for its learners. It has taught me to work with a wide variety of people with different opinions and backgrounds. The time that I spent with my friends (who can now be called my family) will never be forgotten. Gimmie blood will always be in my veins! Thank you to all the teachers, staff members and friends who have changed my life and created memories that will stick with me till the end of time.
