     Sonrise Christian School was established in January 1996 as an affordable Christian educational alternative for the people of Kempton Park/Tembisa. From the efforts of our founding members who took the brave steps to begin this new ministry, Sonrise has been able to provide an education and the development of valuable life skills to many young people in our city.


     Sonrise is a part of the Southern African Christian Schools Sports Association (SACSSA), an organization which provides a variety of sporting opportunities for Grade 1 – 12 learners throughout the year.
The sports we offer are soccer, netball, athletics, swimming, volleyball, table tennis, chess, cross country and mini cricket.
Sonrise’s inclusion policy ensures that all children are giving the opportunity to participate in sports
