Denyse Healy, Principal of Blenheim School since 2015.



 Kia ora e te whānau.

Ko Tararura te maunga
Ko Rangitikei te awa
Ko Ngāti Kotimana te iwi
Nō Wairarapa ahau
Ko au te tumuaki o te kura nei.
Ngā mihi i runga i tā mātou whakataukī ārahi “Whaia te iti kahuarangi ki te tuohu koe, me maunga teitei.”
Ko Denyse Healy ahau
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou katoa.

​Providing opportunities in which students can grow as learners and develop a love of learning is important to me. Our motto of GRIT is all about developing students' dispositions and building tenacity. Our school whakatauki encourages students to set goals and be persistent, not letting obstacles stop them from reaching their goals.

We believe having high expectations of our tamariki, and ensuring they are supported to succeed, is crucial in their learning. It is important that all tamariki have a sense of belonging and feel that their culture is valued.

If you are looking for a school in Blenehim for your child, I encourage you to come and visit our kura. You will see the love of learning the students have and the wonderful supportive whānau environment we create.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child(ren) to the Blenheim School family/whānau of talented staff, dedicated teachers, and happy, motivated students.

Please feel free anytime to make an appointment to see me to discuss your child's education. After all, we're partners in developing the good habits that set them up for a lifetime of learning.

Ngā mihi.
