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.

The last 7 weeks of school have provided a wonderful start to 2018 with so many exciting things happening across the school. This week marks Catholic Education Week and our showcase yesterday was a real celebration of all the good things that are happening in our school.  We welcomed current parents, prospective parents and their children to see our school in action. There were lots of positive comments about how engaged and focussed the children were. Our student leaders did a magnificent job as tour guides. The showcase was a great reminder of all the engaging programs that are on offer here at Fatima.

I have included some photos, below, as an example of this. Last Friday I had the privilege of attending the Outdoor Education stand up paddle boarding experience. It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to show persistence and resilience as well as being lots of fun. I will include information about all Year 5/6 electives which are offered to our senior students in coming editions of the newsletter.



Our Prep 2019 enrolments are now open – so spread the word to family, friends and neighbours who are looking to enroll for next year. Enrolment packs will be distributed to all pre schools in the first week of Term Two. These will consist of an information book and the enrolment form. These are available from our school office at any time. We ask that enrolments are received by the end of June and advise that interviews will be conducted at the start of Term Three.

Congratulations to our 2018 Student Leaders


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
