Principal's Message

Welcome to St Jakobi Lutheran School.

St Jakobi is a school for the community which provides quality Christian education. With a delightful setting among the vineyards and rolling hills at the southern fringe of the Barossa Valley, St Jakobi Lutheran School offers a warm, caring and supportive environment for all who seek a quality Christian education for their children from Foundation to Year 7.

As a school of the Lyndoch Lutheran Parish, St Jakobi has served the local community since its establishment in 1862. All of the activities of our school are part of a process which contributes to the growth and development of children: their self-perception in their relationship to others, in their relationship to God and in the role they can play in society.

We recognise 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 given the opportunity to realise 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. I 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.
