Welcome to St Peter's Lutheran School, Dimboola...
 
 
 

St Peters Lutheran School has been providing a Christian education for children from Dimboola and surrounding districts since 1958.

Our school is unique as it is a small school with small classes and a low teacher to pupil ratio. This creates a sense that the school is a family with a personal and caring approach. We are well equipped with updated resources including computers and interactive whiteboards in each class.

St Peters offers a safe Christian environment that endeavours to provide a diverse learning environment that nurtures mutual respect, love and care.

Over recent years we have upgraded a range of facilities, with the most notable being a new synthetic playground surface and basketball court, new computers and iPads for students to use in class.

At St Peters 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 all have had a wonderful week and are all looking forward to having your children home for the holidays. We have now officially reached the end of the first Semester for 2016. It has been a sensational first half of the year and I am sure that the remainder of the year will be just as good.

You will have received your child’s Semester one report today and I encourage you all to sit down and read through their achievements. Reports contain information on your child’s progress in respect to national standards as well as recommendations for further learning. I still remember my parents sitting down with me and sharing what my teachers wrote. My reports usually said “Tim often chats during class!” and “Tim would benefit from reading more often…..” It is sad but often the case that as adults we tend to focus on those areas that we may have had issues with when we were at school or those areas that stand out in our minds as problem areas.

It is even more important that we build our children up through positive conversations about their learning and achievements. As a teacher and a parent it can become quite difficult when talking to my own children about their reports as I tend to look through a double lens, take my word for it this doesn’t always improve clarity.

My recommendation is that just like us adults, children respond better to these ‘talks’ when they know you are on their side and are interested in them. Point out and discuss all the great things they have achieved and then decide together on a focus area for next term. Set the bar at an achievable height so that they can succeed!

Just a reminder that on Sunday the 10th of July @ 2:00pm-4:00pm we will be having our back to school working bee at school. We have scheduled this time for the last Sunday in the holidays and decided to try the afternoon as many families have commitments over the weekends particularly in the mornings. Even if you have paid the maintenance levy we would appreciate it if you could offer any spare time and energy you may have for these larger working bee’s. Many hands make much lighter work!!! You will be amazed at how much we can get done in 2 hours. Please let the front office know if you intend to come along and help.

Have a great time over the holidays with your families,

Yours in Christ,

Tim Reimann
