We recognize differences in children and encourage each child to develop according to the gifts they have been given. We treat each child as a unique individual. Through the caring interaction of students, parents, staff, and the Parish community, each child is allowed to realize their potential as they develop the foundations for life. Sound Christian principles, excellent resources, comparatively inexpensive fee structure, committed staff, and the opportunity for children to strive towards their full potential - all within a warm, caring, supportive environment. We commend St Jakobi Lutheran School to you with the assurance that, at whatever stage you place your children in our care, we will make every effort to encourage, support, and guide them as they develop and grow.
In the1840'ss early settlers with an eye for the future began educating their children in a school held in the church building on the dry flood plains at Hoffnungstal. This school knew the importance of nurture and vision, educating the children in life skills and the Christian faith using their native German language. In the the1860'ss, after the flooding of Hoffnungstal, the church, and hence school, moved to its current site 1.5 km from Lyndoch. When the new St Jakobi church was built in the early1900'ss, the old church became a dedicated one teacher, multi-grade school, known asset Jakobi Lutheran School.
