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
Hi everyone, I hope that you have all had a fabulous week. The weather has continued to welcome us each day with fresh mornings and then warm up in the afternoons. It’s looking as though for our swimming carnival in 1 weeks’ time that we will have warm temps which will be absolutely perfect. Don’t forget that you are all invited along to our annual Swimming Carnival this year being held on Wednesday the 4th March at the Dimboola pool. Lunch will be a sausage sizzle provided free of charge courtesy of the P&F. Please encourage any relatives or family friends to come along and support our students.
After cancelling last week we now have our P&F welcome BBQ tonight Friday, the 21th February from 5:30pm at the ‘Pines’ down on the bank of our beautiful Wimmera River. Sausages and bread will be provided free of charge but we do ask that each family try and bring along a salad or fruit platter to share, BYO chairs and drinks also. Please remember that you are responsible for your children’s safety in and near the river at this event. Thank you again to the P&F members that are organising this get together.
Next Tuesday we have a visit from the Royal Flying Doctors. Tom will be spending some time speaking with our students about the service that they provide in remote Australian communities. The visit includes many hands on activities that are designed to engage students and embed a deeper understanding of the importance of the RFDS.
Next week our Swimming program concludes. Wednesday the 26th Feb is our first day next week at the pool. All of the boys and girls had another wonderful 3 days at the pool this week, the water was warm and their behaviour was excellent!
Bus students will still be picked up from the pool by their bus each afternoon and parents that pick up students are also asked to continue to collect their children from the pool each day. In the coming weeks some staff, parents and students will be invited to participate in my ‘Principals Appraisal’. This will involve an interview in person here at school. It is an important part of my own professional learning and Leadership journey. If you receive information in regards to this process and have any questions please speak to Rochelle Walters in the front office between 8:30-2:30 Monday to Friday.
Yours in Christ,
Friday 21st February 2020
