About us

CEO and Covering: Senior Pastors Wentzel & Fiona Du Plessis

We are committed to building a school that our late founders Drs. Hendrik and Phillicia Bester pioneered and dreamed of.

Children are extremely important. Through training, mentoring and the best education possible our objective is to develop our learners as part of the great future that God has for them and the expected success that awaits them. At Dunamis Christian School we continuously create a culture of BELIEF AND APPLICATION

Our belief is, above all, in God and then in excellent education and of course our children.Every individual child is important and must be developed in becoming the best that they can be.

As the CEOs, representatives of our directive board and capable educators, we look forward to partnering with you as parents. We strive to give the best education to your children, preparing them as leaders in their own right.

Principal of Dunamis Christian School.

It is with enormous pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Dunamis Christian School.   The year 2021 marks 10 years since the school commenced. This is a significant milestone, and I am proud to be part of it.

I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead the school. I have been dedicated to the field of education for 30 years.  I have worked with a variety of students’ ranging in age from 13 and older.   I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Dunamis Christian School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

I recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a resilient partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that along with the teachers and staff, I will work tirelessly to continue the legacy which was started by Pastors Bester. I will strive to build strong relationships with parents, learners and community partners.  Our main focus now is to implement the complete curriculum.

One of the most important skills we all had to discover during the Covid 19 pandemic, is to adapt and move forward, even during the most passive and trying times which we have ever experienced. Even in times of countless despair and strain we need to be the learner’s safe haven, the place where they can learn to be innovative. Our major focus here at DCS is to teach with passion and respect and help learners to fulfil their God given purpose.

Teaching forms the heart of any community and we therefore strive to carry on as normal as possibly permitted.

To conclude, please remember that my door is always open to you.
I sincerely welcome your conversation and input during this year. Let us keep our students the primary focus of our work. I can’t wait to celebrate our collective successes during the school year.

Thank you for your continuous support in the years to come.

Our Founders: Drs. Hendrik and Phillicia Bester

Dunamis Christian School was established because of a vision birthed in the heart of Dr. Hendrik Bester.
He saw through his years how education was lacking and how schools were going backwards instead of forwards. He saw how many children were influenced in a negative way and became rebellious. He was deeply concerned for the deteriorating pass rate, the teacher-strikes and lack of care towards children.
Drs. Bester’s hearts were for children and teachers and they only wanted the best for them. They believed in creating a good and pleasant environment where both children and educators would be happy and relaxed, without any unnecessary pressures. They believed that there was always room for development and moving forward.
Saying all of this, Drs. Bester always aimed to have the best principal and best teachers with a heart for children, to ensure that children who attended our school would receive the best education- a foundational value that we still carry forward today.

Vision and Mission
