Benneydale School was opened in 1945 when the mine was operational and the village was growing. From this a District High School also opened. This site closed down when the District High School became Benneydale Area School. Over time and with changes to the community Benneydale Area School closed and became the primary school it is today catering for students in Years 1 to 8.
We are still in original buildings which overlook the old primary school site and although there have been many changes Benneydale School remains strongly supported by its parents, whanau and community .
