Principal's Message


I am honoured and feel very privileged to be the Principal of Derrimut Primary School. I enjoy partnering and collaborating with our students, staff and parents/guardians to make our school the best school it can be.

My commitment to our community is to lead the school with enthusiasm and passion to enable us to reach our goals.

We will continue to develop and enhance a school that:

  • Focuses on the development of the whole child
  • Has a strong culture of respect and school pride
  • Strives for excellence to achieve the highest academic standards
  • Reflects the values of its community
  • Ensures every child achieves their learning goals to be the very best versions of themselves
  • Involves the community in learning so our school is an important aspect of the Derrimut community
  • Develops true partnerships that value each child
I have an open door policy and urge all parents to take this opportunity to discuss aspects of the school or issue with me so that we can move forward together.

We truly have a fantastic school with a supportive and involved parent community, dedicated and highly skilful staff, excellent resources and learning environments and the most fantastic students to work with.
