Our Vision

Lobethal Lutheran School will be recognised as an educational and community hub delivering 21st century learning to provide engaging and inspiring Christ-centred education on a site of local historical significance.

Our Values

Lobethal Lutheran School is a school where Christ plays a central and integral part, where learning occurs in a positive attitude of love and forgiveness. We have a committed and professional Christian group of staff who share in the vision and mission of our school. We recognise the individuality of all students and provide opportunities for them to realise their potential. We are committed to developing relationships with the Church, our community and our lovely surrounding environment of the Adelaide Hills within South Australia. We actively value the contribution of parents, volunteers and community members.

Our History

The Lobethal Lutheran School was established by the Lobethal Lutheran congregation in 1842 specifically to care for the children of its members. Closing in 1917 due to the war years, and reopening in 1930, it has grown to be a respected learning environment in the Adelaide Hills. 

Over the years it has changed to providing an extensive educational program in a caring, Christian environment for all families. 

The human history of our region goes back long before we established here. We acknowledge that we are on the land of the Peramangk People, the original custodians of the land.
