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 pupil-to-teacher ratio. This allows us to devote the most time possible to each student and contributes 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.
We remember the legacy of Mr Bruno Matuschka, founding Principal of St Peter's Lutheran School and several other Lutheran schools, our Principal from 1958 to 1961, and a lifelong devotee to Lutheran education.
Bruno joined us at our 60th Anniversary celebrations in 2018 and is pictured speaking to the audience at this event.
I'm excited to announce all our school leaders for the 2024 school year. Our two school captains are Mercedes Paech and Chelsea Elliott. Gold house captains are Jaxon Bourke-Finn and Jack Mibus and Blue house captains are Jagger Smith and Robert Lopez. Congratulations to them and I look forward to watching them strive and represent our school throughout the year.
Just another reminder that are Parents and Friends Committee are hosting a Bunnings sausage sizzle in Horsham on Sunday 17th March. We are still looking for volunteers to ensure the day runs smoothly. Any little bit of help would be greatly appreciated, even if it's only for an hour. If you feel you can help us out, please contact the school office.
Yesterday, students finished up their annual swimming lessons. We were extremely lucky to have Kayla Mibus join us for all swimming lessons and Ellie Baldock joined us this week. Both of these ladies are qualified swim teachers, with such a large amount of experience and knowledge. They were able to provide our students with excellent tips and guidance to become better swimmers. They taught our students with such patients and care, and I'm grateful that they choose to help our students.
On Friday 23rd February we held our annual swimming carnival. Although the weather wasn't so kind to us, all students did an excellent job. They kept persisting while shivering and everyone tried their absolute best. Thank you to all the families that joined us to cheer on our students, it was so nice to see lots of support. There were not many points between the two teams which is good, a close game is a good game. Team GOLD did make it over the line and was the overall winning team.
