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
Welcome back to school for Term 3!! I hope that you all had a wonderful break and enjoyed spending time with your families. My family and I had an enjoyable break staying mainly here in Dimboola. Mrs Reimann and Oli are currently in Bali where they are both enjoying much warmer weather and many fun adventures with Mrs Reimann’s mum and sister. Eli and I have been left at home to look after the menagerie we have and to head back to school for the beginning of term 3.
Term 3 is always another busy term here at St Peters. We have our school concert at the end of this term. This year we are presenting a musical called ‘Happily Forever After’ it is always a fabulous opportunity for our students to showcase their singing and acting talents. Our concert is on the 19th of September starting at 7:00pm in the Church Hall followed by a shared supper. Please put this date onto your calendar’s we would love to see you all there.
On Thursday, 3 of our senior students travelled to Halls Gap with Ms Dwan. These students were involved in a Leadership day facilitated by Emma Graetz. Students from 5 other Lutheran schools also participated in this day of activities and discussions. We thank Mr Damon Prenzler from Nhill Lutheran School for organising this valuable day.
Just a friendly reminder for students who arrive at school before 8:30. Staff are only on duty outside from 8:30 each morning. Before 8:30 staff are preparing for the day and meeting together for a devotion and time of prayer. We understand that every now and then students may be dropped off earlier than usual, however if it becomes a regular occurrence you may have to organise another routine for the mornings.
It is good to see many students dressing warmly in the mornings. We are still having quite a few crisp and chilly days ahead of us. Students who arrive at school without warm clothing often want to be inside as soon as they arrive. Our expectation for all students is that once they arrive and place their bags in their locker they are then to be outside until the bell goes. Of course, in extreme weather events students will be able to shelter inside.
Hot food Friday is on again this term, and this week we have baked spuds for lunch. Thank you again to our wonderful P&F and helpers who organise and prepare these tasty lunches for staff and students.
Have a safe and Blessed Weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Friday 19th July
