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 fabulous week. It has certainly been a very busy week here at St Peters with many exciting bits and pieces going on in and outside of the classrooms.
Simultaneous Storytime was on at the Dimboola Library this Wednesday. All students walked down to the Library with Mrs Whittaker, Mrs Schubert and myself. We listened to this year’s book, Alpaca’s with Maraca’s and participated in a fun activity during which all children constructed and coloured in their own Alpaca. The behaviour of all our students was exemplary, with Margaret the Librarian mentioning several times how polite and well-mannered they all were. Thank you also to those parents that were able to come along with your youngsters and be a part of this fun excursion.
Next week on Wednesday all boys and girls in the senior class will be heading off to Melbourne for camp. We will be visiting Science works, the Museum, Aquarium and the Victoria Markets. Ms Dwan and I will be the teachers going on camp this year. Mrs Dent, Mrs Whittaker , Mrs Schubert and Mrs Walters will still be at school while we are away. Thank you to all the parents and caregivers for returning their child’s camp notes well ahead. We will be hitting the road at 7:00am Wednesday morning and aim to be back sometime between 5:00-6:00pm Friday evening. We will let you know our ETA as we get closer to home.
Last week all boys and girls in years 3 and 5 completed their Naplan assessments.
Naplan is a national annual assessment for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. It tests the types of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. These tests cover skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy.
Ms Dwan and I were both very proud of the way our students tried their very best with all of the Assessments knowing that this is only really able to display a small portion of their core subject knowledge and abilities.
A reminder that this Friday the 24th May is a student free day. All staff are travelling down to the Western Hub Conference in Tarrington. Staff will be listening to several speakers and engaging in discussions around the topic of Contemporary Transformation of Education.
On Tuesday Declan, Dane, Ethan and Ryan competed in the next stage of our district crosscountry competition which was held in Kaniva. All of the boys put in a fantastic effort on the day.
Congratulations to Declan Paech and Dane who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively in their categories. Declan has also been selected to race in Warrnambool later this term. Very well-done boys.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Thursday 23rd May
