Welcome to St Peter's Lutheran School, Dimboola
St Peter's Lutheran School has been providing a Christian education for children from Dimboola and surrounding districts since 1958.
We offer a safe Christian environment that endeavours to provide a diverse learning environment that nurtures mutual respect, love and care.
Our school is unique as it is a small school with small class sizes and a low teacher-to-pupil ratio. This allows us to devote the most time possible to each student and contributed to the sense of family within our school. Our classrooms are well-equipped with updated resources including a fleet of modern laptops and iPads, allowing students one-to-one access to these devices. Touchscreen televisions in each classroom are well utilised in our teaching and learning activities.
At St Peter's Lutheran Primary School we have a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Our experienced and carefully appointed teachers have a wide range of expertise, skills and knowledge which we have incorporated into our broad and stimulating curriculum.
Stay up to date with the very latest from St Peter's.

From Our Principal
Hi everyone, I hope that you all have had a wonderful week and are all looking forward to having your children home for the July holidays. We have now officially reached the end of the first semester for 2020. It has been a rather interesting term dealing with the pandemic, restrictions and around 60% of student’s remote learning for over half of the term. Even though it has certainly looked very different, all students have adapted and had a fabulous first half of the year. I am sure that terms 3 and 4 will be just as good.
We have only just recently been able to lock in a new date for our school photos.
Wednesday September the 9th is now when Andrew from Creations Photography will be coming out to St Peters. We certainly have plenty of warning so please ensure that your children will be well presented and dressed appropriately on the day.
Today you will have received your child’s semester one report and I encourage you all to sit down and read through their achievements. Reports contain information on your child’s progress in respect to national standards as well as areas for further skill development and growth. It is disappointing but often the case that as adults we tend to focus on those areas that we may have had issues with when we were at school or those areas that stand out in our minds as problem areas for our children. All children learn and grow differently. When we compare individual students or siblings we are truly wasting our time. There is nothing worse for a child than hearing parents making comparisons… “Your sisters reports were always……”
It is even more important that we build our children up through positive conversations about their learning and achievements. My recommendation is that just like us adults, children respond better to these ‘chats’ when they know you are on their side and are interested in them and not just the report. Point out and discuss all the great things they have achieved and then decide together on a focus area for next term. Set the bar at an achievable height so that they can truly succeed!
The past semester has been full of opportunities and successes for our students. It is with much pride that I must thank the students for their fantastic behaviour and respect, no matter the situation or location. You have all earned a rest from school routine, and I wish you all a safe a blessed holiday break with your family and friends.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office during school hours.
Yours in Christ,
Friday 26th June 2020
