Derrimut Heath Primary School opened in 1992 and is located 30 kilometres west of the GPO in Hoppers Crossing. Current enrolment is over 500 students from Prep to Year 6. In 2008 a new campus of Derrimut Heath Primary School, Tarneit campus, opened to cater for students from Prep to Year 9 and is located at Baden Powell Drive, Tarneit.
To reflect our status as a two campus school we saw the formation of Baden Powell College. The college is named after Harold Llewellyn Baden Powell who had the ultimate respect for family values and education, as well as a wonderful commitment to his community.
Our college community values education and shares a common vision of the future “Looking Forward, Staying Ahead”. It is committed to providing students with the skills, knowledge and values necessary to be effective members and leaders of our society. Our mission is “Educating our community through the provision of leading edge educational services, products and practices”.
At Baden Powell College, our school works together to understand and improve sustainability in day-to-day operations, curriculum and community. We reduce our impact on the Earth in order to produce a clean, safe and healthy environment and preserve resources for future generations.
