Extra-Curricular Activities

FREE CAPS Compliant Computer Programme

Dunamis Christian School implores Computer Skills for Africa to prepare our learners for the technological demands of the post-modern work place. Whether your child has never used a personal computer before or they are the next technological-fundi, there is something to challenge each individual.

OXFORD Reading Programme

Reading is an essential academic skill and a curriculum focus in the Foundation Phase. Dunamis Christian School makes use of the internationally recognized Oxford Reading Tree programme to supplement the CAPS curriculum- ensuring our learners read at an international standard.

THRASS Phonic Programme

Phonics are the building blocks of academic reading and writing. Here at Dunamis Christian School we make use of the South African based THRASS phonics programme to ensure that each learner’s literacy foundations are grounded in contextually relevant phonics development.

Bible Study and Devotions

Dunamis Christian School is grounded in a firm Christian ethos in which Christian values are upheld throughout the school day. A vital part of our day is to start with prayer. Our weekly assemblies have become the platform for bible study and devotion time where pastors and leaders from our local church engage with learners on a spiritual level, sharing the Word of God and modelling Godly values and principles.

Curriculum beyond the Classroom (CBC)

Experiential learning, which is linking classroom-based learning to “real-life”, is a vital part of ensuring that learning and development stays relevant. Our annual outings provide opportunities for learners to engage with practical curriculum integration and exposure. These annual outings are deliberately designed with curriculum integration in mind.
