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 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.
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.
We remember the legacy of Mr Bruno Matuschka, founding Principal of St Peter's Lutheran School and several other Lutheran schools, our Principal from 1958 to 1961, and a lifelong devotee to Lutheran education.
Bruno joined us at our 60th Anniversary celebrations in 2018 and is pictured speaking to the audience at this event.
All students have done a fabulous job this week during swimming lessons. Swimming lessons will continue next week on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Unfortunately, we are unable to have swimming lessons on Tuesday 20th Feb, due to the High school having their swimming carnival on.
Next Friday, 23rd February we will hold our annual swimming carnival. Students will arrive at the swimming pool at around 10am, they need time to get changed and organised before starting the program at approximately 10:30am. We anticipate that the carnival will finish between 12pm-1pm.
On Monday the bureau of meteorology declared Tuesday 13th Feb forecast weather as a catastrophic fire danger rating. St. Peter’s Lutheran School is in the BARR- bushfire at risk register, which means we are to close the school when a Catastrophic day is forecast in our fire weather district. Thank you to all our families for being understanding at late notice.
Due to the school closure day on Tuesday, we had a delayed Shrove Tuesday on Wednesday. Our students were extremely excited that they didn’t miss out. Our grade 6 students all helped out with the process of making the pancakes and all students enjoyed eating them at recess. Pastor Levi joined us on Wednesday morning for pancakes and to educate our students on Ash Wednesday and Shrove Tuesday.
School photos will be happening on Friday March 8th. A note and students photo forms have been sent home this week. Can you please return these by Friday 1st March. Students need to bring the envelope back even if families are not wanting to purchase photos. If your child didn’t come home with information regarding photos, please contact the office and we can assist.
Our Parents and Friends committee are very excited to be hosting a Bunnings sausage sizzle in Horsham on Sunday 17th March. We are looking for volunteers to help on the day. This could be friends, grandparents or parents, any help is greatly appreciated and for any time short or long. Please contact the school office if you can help. The money raised by our parents and friends allows them to support our school in many ways. Projects that have recently been supported by our P&F include installation of synthetic turf, the purchase of the ninja playground and the purchase of classroom resources such as decodable text.
