Welcome to our website. I hope that through these pages you will come to see and understand a little of the spirit and life of Our Lady of Fatima Primary School. When you walk through our school gates I hope you feel the welcoming spirit in person.
We are situated in Rosebud on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Our students are drawn from Rosebud, Dromana, McCrae, Safety Beach, Boneo and Cape Schanck. We attract students from eight different preschool centres and most of our Year 6 students go on to attend Padua College after graduating. Some of our students go on to Rosebud Secondary College, Dromana Secondary College, Flinders Christian College and Toorak College.
Our school motto is Dream Believe Achieve, and we aim to foster in our students the understanding that goal setting and hard work are essential actions if we are to achieve our dreams.
Our Catholic Faith is important to us. We aim to help students grow in their faith journey, appreciating God’s love for them and knowing that the Gifts of the Spirit are available to be called on in prayer and action throughout their lives. These amazing gifts are a lifetime package:
Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Right Judgment, Courage, Reverence, Wonder and Awe.
Through our Spirit of Fatima Star we encourage students to consider the development of the whole person. The points of the star are:
~ Christian Spirit
~ The Arts
We recognise that our students have individual strengths and talents which should be developed and shared. We recognise that we can learn from each other and that teamwork is important. We affirm effort and celebrate success in many different fields of endeavor. This occurs through the classroom, assemblies, newsletters and extra-curricular activities.
We have a very dedicated group of teachers who work hard for their students.
We recognise that games and play are important sources of learning for children. Our spacious grounds and range of play options ensure children have plenty of choice during recess and lunch breaks.
After visiting our website, if you would like to know more, please feel free to come in person for a tour of the school. Call the office for an appointment or email us with any queries.
