SCHOOL HISTORY

Mr. Baird first taught in Blenheim in 1895, and became a principal in 1900. Six years later, he became the Secretary of the School Board, and served in that capacity for 40 years.  

In 1916, Mr. Baird became the Blenheim postmaster and remained in this position until his retirement. He was also an artist and two of his paintings are displayed in the front foyer .
