Goals & Values

INSTITUTIONAL GOALS
This program is committed to an educational philosophy which does not follow the traditions of men, or the principles of the world, but after Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:8) Christian education means that Christ is central to education. Consequently, our educational theory, methods and practice must be built upon Christ as their cornerstone. Because there is only one God and one Christ, there is only one truth. This truth is the centre and criteria of Christian education. While the bible is not used as a textbook in every subject, it is the foundational handbook for every course and the standard for teaching.
EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
To effectively achieve our goals and maintain our testimony as a Christian Educational institution for God’s glory, our Christian school as a community upholds: · Harmony in the home, school and country by instilling family orientated values and responsible citizenship. · Excellence in body, mind and Spirit by practicing healthy living, develop critical and creative thinking.
CORE VALUES
· To provide a dynamic curriculum that will teach all subjects in the framework of biblical authority and indirectly of biblical truth becomes framework for understanding each subject. · To develop in students a drive towards scholastic excellence, which would include the teaching of critical and creative thinking skills, mathematical and technological skills to solve problems as well as developing entrepreneurial skills.

Our Founders

founders

Dr’s Hendrik and Phillicia Bester are the founders of Dunamis Christian school. Ten years before the school originated Dr Hendrik Bester was led to open a school, but not just any school. He dreamt of building a school that would develop children to be the best in every area of their lives. The school originated in January of 2011 with 12 children in the grade one class. 


Under the careful leadership and guidance of our founders, the school has grown rapidly, creating the need for two premises this year. Dr Hendrik and Philicia Bester continue to seek God’s face regarding the future of our school. We look forward to seeing the fulfillment of the wonderful promises that God has put in their hearts.
