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.

5th October - 18th December
From Our Principal
Hello everyone, welcome to week 2 of term 4. I hope that you have all had a wonderful week. The weather has been quite unpredictable of late with some cooler mornings and then some very warm days. We appreciate your support in encouraging your children to wear their hats each day. First and Fourth terms are always ‘No Hat, No play in the sun today’ we are a sun smart school and as it warms up even more we will also encourage the regular application of sunscreen.
We wish to congratulate Lionel, Sam, Eloise and Kylie on the safe arrival of their son and brother ‘Toby’. Both Sam and Toby are doing well. We are all very excited to meet the new member of your family.
We will continue to keep you all up to date in regards to any health advice received from government departments in respect to School operations. Our school is still being cleaned every day of the week. All staff and students are following strict hygiene practices and anyone unwell is being asked to stay at home until they have recovered.
Next week is our Book Week!! As has been in the past there will be books and other items on display all week. This year will look different mainly for parents and caregivers due to the way in which books can be looked at and purchased. At this stage the room will only be accessed by staff and students. Please stay tuned for further details and information. There will not be an opportunity this year for parents and caregivers to be on site for the book parade or book browsing. We will share plenty of photos of the students dressed up for the parade on Thursday the 22nd of October.
New enrolments for 2021 and for the following year 2022 are still being taken. It is encouraging to see that we already have several prep students enrolling for next year and the year after. Please come in and see Mrs Walters in the front office if you require further information or documents. Pre- enrolling at this time is a way to ensure that your child/children and their needs can be considered prior to the New Year. Teaching staff can organise class groups, order resources and plan more efficiently when we know student numbers well in advance.
Next week we do finish on Thursday the 22nd. Friday the 23rd has been declared a Public Holiday in VIC and is being called ‘Thank you Day’ by our state government.
I would like to thank you all once again for being so supportive and remaining calm and positive during this challenging time.
Have a safe and Blessed weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Friday 16th October 2020
