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.

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 Easter holidays. We have now officially reached the end of the first term for 2019. It has been a fabulous start to the year and I am sure that terms 2, 3 and 4 will be just as positive and productive.
It has been an extremely busy but wonderful term full of so many excellent achievements and exciting events. Thank you to all those parents that have been able to support our school with donations or their time and energy.
Yesterday was our Athletics Carnival up at DMSC. The weather was extremely agreeable and with some sunshine and then a cooler breeze in the afternoon. It was pleasing to see so many parents and friends spectating and supporting our students as they competed in the vast array of events over the day. We were all very pleased with the behaviour and positive attitude of our students. All the boys and girls had a go in all of their events and listened very well to their group leaders.
We were able to announce the winning house and age champions today after chapel. The Junior champions were Jax Skurrie and Kylie Clarke and the Senior champions were Declan Paech and Nitika Krahe. The winning house was Gold by a very close margin of only 2 points over Blue!! Special thanks go to our sports coordinator Ms Kathryn Dwan for making sure the day ran smoothly and to all other staff and parents who took on an event or group of students to manage for the day. Without your support we would not be able to run such a successful event.
Our Chapel offerings and gold coin donations today were collected in support of the Good Friday appeal which goes to the Royal Children’s hospital in Melbourne. These funds help sick kids receive world class care. This event occurs on Good Friday every year and because we are on holidays for an extended week this year we collected these donations earlier.
Anzac Day is on Thursday 25th April and as usual student leaders will be laying a wreath and participating in the march from the front gates of DMSC up to the honor board as a part of the ceremony. We encourage all students to be a part of this event and to meet us at the front gates of DMSC at 8:30 am so that we can organise ourselves for the march. We understand that some students will be involved in Guides on this occasion.
The past term 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 and blessed holiday break with your family and friends.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Thursday 4th April
