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 everyone, I hope that you have all had another fabulous week. I have enjoyed the cooler evenings and fresh breezes that welcomed us each morning. It was a little unexpected to have above 30 degrees for a couple days this week however, I expect it may be summers last Hoorah! I wish to thank our school community for all their love and support while we as a family are grieving the loss of Priscilla’s Father.
We are currently in Griffith N.S.W where the funeral has been held today.
Thank you for your patience as we work through the challenges facing our community at the moment surrounding Corona Virus or COVID-19.
We are receiving regular updates from The Department of Education, Department of Health and Human Services, Independent Schools Victoria and Lutheran Education. We will follow their direction in regards to school closures.
As we have a large number of families now self-isolating, we made the decision to postpone our school photos on Thursday 19th March 2020. It simply would not be fair to only have half of our students in the photo and it would not be a true picture of our school community.
As you would no doubt have also heard we have also decided to postpone our Athletics Carnival that was scheduled for next Thursday 26th March 2020.
All Regional Athletics and Cross Country events have been cancelled indefinitely and may not even run in 2020. So there is now no rush for us to hold our carnival.
We take pride in keeping our school clean and tidy, we have increased our cleaning routine to make sure all high touch areas and bathrooms are cleaned daily.
We acknowledge that some families and children will be disappointed to miss out on these events. However, it is important to explain to them we are supporting the health and wellbeing of our community by cancelling these events.
This is an evolving situation that changes constantly. We will endeavour to inform our school community as necessary by email, social media and notes home of any updates or other important information.
If you as a family have made the choice to Self-Quarantine your children and they are no longer attending school we respect your decision. If our school if forced to close during term time we will be supplying some resources that will enable students to continue their learning journey. These will focus on the areas of Literacy and Numeracy. They will be revision based and aimed at strengthening skills and embedding understanding.
Have a safe and Blessed Weekend,
Yours in Christ,
Friday 20th March 2020
