Benoni, Gauteng province, South Africa, east of Johannesburg. It is situated at 5,419 feet (1,652 m) above sea level and covers two sides of a valley that borders four lakes.
Benoni was established as a mining camp after the local discovery of gold in 1887. The local mining chairman, Sir George Farrar, landscaped the valley in the early 1900s, and Benoni was officially declared a town in 1907. It is now part of the industrial complex of the Witwatersrand and is particularly noted for its iron and steel works and brass foundry.
In the main all-purpose hall, students have access to table tennis, indoor basketball and a pool table.
Outdoor activities include soccer and cricket matches against congregational teams in the area. A tennis court is also available to students. Judo classes have also featured. On Friday afternoons, students who request shopping time at the local malls are taken by a school bus.
