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.

Thanks to all who attended the Mother’s Day Mass and morning tea last week. It was good to see so many of you there to join the children and parishioners in prayer and then to share a delicious morning tea with friends. The Foundation students led us beautifully in prayer and our Year Six students served morning tea and supervised the toddlers. I hope all mums enjoyed the gifts from the Mother’s Day stall. Thanks to our parent group, Marie, Sally, Angela, Natalie P, Lisa, Faye & Katrina who did such a great job organising the stall.

Friday 13th May marked the 100th anniversary of Mary’s appearance to the shepherd children at Fatima in Portugal. Bishop Peter Elliot has written about the story in detail – his reflection can be found in this week's newsletter for those who might be interested to know more. We marked the feast day last week with the whole school mass and the blessing of the new statue Father Bart commissioned for the entry way to the school and church. A set of rosary beads has been provided for each child. They will be kept in class sets while we teach the children about the prayer and then be distributed for each child to keep.

Our book fair will be held in week 6 of term from 22nd May to 26th May. Books will be on display in the foyer of the hall with purchases available after school daily.
