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.
Stay up to date with the very latest from St Peter's.

From Our Principal
Hello everyone, it has been a sensational week here at St Peters. We hope that your week has been positive and productive also.
On Sunday afternoon, the Victorian Government announced that, on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, regional and rural Victoria will move to Stage 3 restrictions and metropolitan Melbourne will move to Stage 4 restrictions to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).These requirements apply to all schools across the government, Catholic and Independent sectors.
The changes to schools’ operations came into effect on Wednesday 5 August, following a student free day on Tuesday 4 August, and are likely to apply until the end of Term 3. As outlined in the Chief Health Officer’s advice on Friday, schools remain safe places for staff and students - but these steps are critical measures to reduce the movement of students and families across the state.
National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day is celebrated each year around the 4th August. It is important that we at St Peters show our support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, as well as learn about the crucial impact that culture, family and community play in the life of every the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child.
The theme for 2020 is “We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice”.
Elders hold a significant role in the Aboriginal community. They are the holders of traditional knowledge and are often called up to provide reassurance, comfort and hope, especially in times of uncertainty.
All P&F meetings scheduled over this term have been cancelled. If you have any important items to share or ideas for future fundraising please contact Heidi Bruce, Zoe Krahe or another parent who is part of the P&F committee. New parents and friends are always welcome, so please come along once we are allowed to meet here at school again.
New enrolments for 2021 and for the following year 2022 are being taken. It is encouraging to see that we already have several prep students enrolled 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. Preenrolling 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.
Even though under current restrictions we must maintain many of the same routines and habits as last term. School cleaning will be ongoing every day of the week. Students will be encouraged to maintain good hygiene habits and all staff and students will have their temperature taken every day of the week.
Yours in Christ,
Friday 7th August 2020
