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
Hi everybody, welcome to Week 6 of Term 2 of 2020. I hope that you have all had a wonderful week. We have had another sensational week here at school. It has been fantastic to have such great rain once again.
We certainly had some serious Thunder and Lightning on Tuesday night and from what the students told me on Wednesday morning, they had been kept awake by the weather also. It’s been interesting to see such a variety of fungi, toadstools and mushrooms sprouting up in our gardens and on the oval. There seems to be many more than other years and the students and I have been intrigued by the different types.
It is with great excitement that we announce that Mrs Millie Dent and her husband Aiden are expecting a new addition to their family later in the year. Congratulations to the Dent family, including big brother to be Maxi.
Last Tuesday morning the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced that face to face learning would recommence from Tuesday 26th May 2020.
Monday 25th May 2020 will be a student free day. This will allow staff to prepare for the return of students to face to face learning. Our staff will be working from home and completing some online training. Our classrooms will also be having a ‘Deep Cleanse’ in preparation for all students returning to school.
On Tuesday 26th May 2020 all Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 students are to return to school for face to face learning. There will be no remote learning options for these students.
We understand that if you have older children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 this may be difficult to manage and encourage those older students to return to school on Tuesday 26th May 2020 also.
Monday the 8th of June is the Queen’s Birthday Public holiday so school will be shut.
On Tuesday 9th June 2020, all remaining students are to return to school for face to face learning. There will be no remote learning options for any of our students from this date.
I thank you again for your continued patience and support as we work through the challenges facing our community at the moment surrounding COVID-19.
As you would have seen once again in last week’s newsletter, we have decided to add some excitement and fun to each Friday this term.
Today was the fourth and final day of our ‘Fabulous Fashion Fridays’ and it was ‘Crazy Hat’ day. Students were allowed to wear a hat in their own style and fashion choice. We had some very bright and amazing fashion statements walk in the gates today.
Thank you to those families who have been able to share photos over the past weeks.
On the last day of Term 2 we will be having a casual dress day with a gold coin donation which will go to the Royal Children’s Hospital.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school during school hours.
Have a safe and Blessed Weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Friday 22nd May 2020
