    "Derrimut Primary School commenced operations in 2010 and is one of 11 schools in the Public, Private Partnerships (PPP) program. Derrimut PS is a government school opened to serve the educational needs of the growing suburb of Derrimut. The backgrounds of students reflect a cultural and socio-economic diversity including a number of children from non-English speaking backgrounds. It opened with 250 students in 2010 and has a current enrolment of 546 with an expectation to grow rapidly beyond 700 in the next year and settling to approximately 470 within the next 10 years.

    The Derrimut Primary School community is committed to providing innovative programs that stimulate and challenge each student to develop lifelong learning skills and strategies. We provide a safe, nurturing environment where teachers, students, parents and the community work in an effective partnership.

    Derrimut Primary School has extremely talented and professional staff, who work closely together to ensure the educational and wellbeing needs of all students are met. The development of a core set of values (Academic Rigour, Respect, Leadership and Teamwork) and a whole school approach to cognitive and emotional engagement has led to a consistent and supportive environment in which students flourish. Underpinning programs at Derrimut Primary School is the belief and commitment to the school’s motto:

    “A place to grow and thrive”"
