Demolition crews have levelled the old Homai College for the Blind in Manurewa and now a brand new,  purpose built building  has gone up in its place. 

It’s the home of BLENNZ , the Blind and Low Vision Education Network New Zealand which co-ordinates and provides educational services for 1500 young people throughout the country.

BLENNZ principal Jane Wells tells us about the organisation and takes Carol Stiles on a tour of the state-of-the-art facility.
