St Peter's Lutheran School has been providing a Christian education for children from Dimboola and surrounding districts since 1958.
We are unique as a small school with small class sizes and a low pupil-to-teacher ratio. This allows us to devote the most time possible to each student and contributes 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.
Our School Board is responsible for the governance of our school and is comprised of members of our school family and the wider community.
The St Peter's Lutheran Primary School community believes that God is a loving, gracious God. He cares for and stands by all of us as we grow in our relationship with Him. We believe that every child is blessed with gifts, ready to grow.

- Strives for excellence in all that we do
- Uses God's gifts and blessings to the fullest for ourselves and for our society
