We have an exceptional team of talented  and dedicated staff who work hard to build positive relationships with our children,  whanau and wider community to provide multiple pathways for our learners, whether they be academic, sporting, service or cultural. 

At David Henry students have the opportunity to use a range of  digital technology, including chromebooks, ipads and laptops.    Our two senior classes Year5/6 - a chromebook class (school provides a chromebook for each child,) Year 4/5 class an ipad class - all classes have interactive whiteboards and data projectors to help reinforce learning.
