Welcome to our website......

Our Lady of Fatima School is situated on the Mornington Peninsula, approximately 85km south of Melbourne, in a seaside location on the edge of Port Phillip Bay. The school serves the Catholic communities of both Rosebud and Dromana.

Our school offers a comprehensive curriculum within the context of a faith community. Our Lady of Fatima School offers the latest in teaching and learning, technology, extra curricula activities, and the benefits of being a high quality, inclusive, co-educational Catholic school. We offer our students a rounded education that supports personal growth based on Christian values. We encourage students to develop a knowledge of other cultures, languages and environmental and social issues.

In your child's time at Our Lady of Fatima the staff will be willing to support you in the education of your child. We will always try our hardest to provide the best environment for good learning, as well as making school a good place to be for your child. We are fortunate to have an excellent team of dedicated and competent staff who are well supported by all in the parent community.

Year 5 and 6 classes will have two days at the beach next week with members of Life Saving Victoria and qualified Fatima staff. Classes attend both days on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd February. Life Saving Victoria run a comprehensive program of activities and these are complemented by follow up from our own staff. The days include lots of learning about beach safety, safe practices when using boards and flotation devices, sun smart practices and coastal environments.

Thursday 22nd of February is the night of our Welcome Back to School Picnic which will run from 5.00pm to 7.30pm. This is a great opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher, catch up with other parents, meet our new families and generally celebrate our school community. The pizza oven will be available for those who would like to bring a pizza to cook, the barbecues will be available for those who would like to bring meat to cook, or you can bring along your own prepared picnic. BYO chairs or picnic rug along with your food and drink.

Teachers will be in their classrooms from 5.00pm to 6.00pm so take the opportunity to go with your child to meet the teacher and have a look at some of the classroom work to date. Then join in the fun with your child playing games or let the children play while you catch up with other members of the school community. A special welcome to our families who are new to the school.

On Wednesday 14th March we will celebrate Catholic Education Week with an open afternoon where you are invited to come along between 2.15 and 4.30 to see displays and activities showcasing some of the exciting work being done in class and in our specialist programs such as Robotics, Arts, Outdoor Ed, Media, Science and more. A program of activities will be provided so you can plan your afternoon visit.

Parent teacher interviews will be held on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th March. You will have the opportunity to book your time on line from the beginning of March. Look out for this information in your class news email. If you are not receiving classroom news via email – please advise your child’s class teacher.

During Lent we also focus on giving to those less fortunate. We support Project Compassion which raises awareness and funds for CARITAS to provide monetary and prayerful support to those in need. You can read more about this initiative at
