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, welcome to week 6 of term 4. I hope that you have all had a very positive and pleasant week. The weather has been extremely challenging of late. The windy days and changes in temperature have surely kept us guessing.
Thank-you to parents and caregivers for being flexible and sending your children to school suitably attired.
We have planned a fun day for all of the students as is tradition each year. The Dimboola Pool is booked for us on Wednesday the 4th December from 9:30-2:00. The students will still be able to order lunch being a Wednesday but to bring a packed lunch if not ordering. All students will need a packed recess and plenty of water to drink. All staff will be present and several fun activities will be run along with plenty of safe free time for all!! If you are available on the 4th December please come along and be a part of our celebrations on this day. All younger children are also welcome, so please bring them along!
Please don’t forget that Friday the 6th December is a student free day for all students. Staff will be engaged in final assessments and writing reports.
Local carols by candlelight at the soundshell will not be on this year. There had been some talk about a Dimboola street party every second year however, we as a school are not involved at this stage. We will let you know if we receive further details.
Our final day of this term is Thursday the 12th December. School will finish at the normal time being 3:20. All students and their families are encouraged to come along that night from 6:00pm for our end of year graduation service. There is a shared supper afterwards so please bring along a plate of food to share. Student reports will be handed out as you head home. If you are unable to attend this event your child’s report will be mailed to you on Monday 16th December.
Transition for students going to High School continued this week at DMSC. This year we only have one year 6 student graduating and they will be going to DMSC. Transition is an important time for all students, especially those changing campus or classrooms. We understand that some students require extra support when routines and teachers change. Please speak to your child’s teacher if you have any questions in regards to transition.
We have our first official transition day next week on the 19th November for Prep children that are attending St Peters in 2020. It is always a great opportunity to get to know new parents and also allow other students to meet and form friendships with these children. We look forward to seeing you and your children very soon.
Have a safe and Blessed Weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Friday 15th November
