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
Hello everyone, our fifth week of term 3 has seen a slight increase in sunshine which certainly made a big difference when out and about in the playground. The bees are certainly busy also enjoying the plentiful flowering natives. Last week we had the ‘pruning workshop’ which was organised by the Native nursery. It was a terribly cold and windy day however, those that attended kept warm with some help from ‘Black Betty’ the coffee van. Thanks to the Native Nursery for involving our school in such a great community event.
On Tuesday afternoon we were invited to attend the Ladies Guild meeting. All students participated and performed 6 songs for the ladies. The students also thoroughly enjoyed sharing many funny jokes with Pastor and the ladies. We also took this opportunity to formally invite them all along to our concert on Thursday the 19th September. We thank the Ladies Guild for their continual support and interest in our wonderful school.
Please don’t forget that on Friday the 16th August we have a student free day here at St Peters. DMSC and DPS are also closed for the day. All St Peters staff will be involved in curriculum planning and professional development. We hope that you can utilize a midterm long weekend.
New enrolments for 2020 and for the following year 2021 are being taken. It is encouraging to see that we already have several prep students enrolling for next year and also 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 are able to organise class groups, order resources and plan ahead more efficiently when we know student numbers well in advance.
All students have been busy practicing for this year’s musical. 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.
Hot food was available again this week, we enjoyed toasted sandwiches for our hot food Thursday lunch. Thank you again to our wonderful P&F and helpers who organise and prepare these delicious lunches for staff and students.
Have a safe and Blessed Weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Thursday 15th August
