Welcome to Edendale Primary School, Southland, New Zealand.
We are the school 'Where Our Dreams Begin!' and we have been serving the educational needs of our community since 1875.
We are a seven teacher school ranging in numbers from 140 - 165.
World record breaker Burt Munro, made famous in the movie The Fastest Indian, was a pupil of our school.
All Black Damian McKenzie, along with his brother Martin McKenzie, attended Edendale Primary School.
We love seeing our students going on to make their dreams a reality, becoming confident, connected, actively involved, life-long learners.
We are nestled in the heart of Eastern Southland, New Zealand.
We are on State Highway One, in the township of Edendale, which is 38 kilometres east of Invercargill and 28 kilometres south of Gore.
We neighbour Fonterra Edendale which is one of the biggest dairy plants in the Southern hemisphere.
In spring you will see paddocks of tulips growing near our township.
We publish a newsletter once a week on a Friday.
The link to it is placed on our Facebook Page and on our app.
Historical newsletter links can be found under 'Our School' and
then scroll down to 'Newsletters'.
Each year we publish our Parent Information Handbook.
In it we put all the useful information necessary
for parents of children enrolled with us.
2019's Parent Information Handbook is here.
