Welcome to Edendale Primary School.

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 for 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 is brother Martin McKenzie, attended Edendale Primary School.

We love seeing our children going on to make their dreams a reality, becoming confident, connected, actively involved, life-long learners.

Location

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.
