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.

Every year we support the Food For All – Kick in a Can appeal which collects donations of food an blankets for those in need. Local community groups including our parish St Vincent de Paul volunteers do a wonderful job distributing food to those in need in our community. We are supporting the drive by asking all students to bring in a food item next Thursday 22nd June. Students who donate to the ap-peal have the option to wear casual clothes in exchange for a donation.

St John Ambulance will visit our school on 26th and 27th June to deliver free First Aid in Schools training to our students. Through the First Aid in Schools program, trained St John presenters lead students from Foundation – Year 6 through tailored sessions on the importance of First Aid and what to do in the event of an emergency.

Our junior students learn about how to identify when there is an emergency, keeping themselves safe, and how to call for an ambulance. Senior students learn about delivering CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and the things they can do to assist in an emergency.

Participating students will be given a special piece of homework for parents to complete. We encourage you to “do your homework” and go online(www.stjohnvic.com.au/quiz) to see how much you know about First Aid. Are you First Aid READY? More information about the St John First Aid in Schools program can be found at: www.stjohnvic.com.au/schools

As a result of our parent report survey last year and following consultation with the Parent Advisory Group we have made some changes to the way we report your child’s progress. At the end of this term you will receive your child’s report and you will see that there are additional areas to provide you with more detail about your child’s progress in their learning.

In place of the Portfolio that has come home in recent years, this semester your child will be inviting you to the classroom to share their learning and work samples. This will be in the form of a student-led conference where your child will share pieces of work they have selected, explain their learning goals and celebrate their achievements. This will be a chance for you to share in your child’s learning in the classroom. There will be parent teacher conferences early in Term 3 where you will be able to discuss your child’s progress with their teacher.

The Student Showcase will be held on Tuesday 27th June. You will be able to book in to attend the showcase via www.schoolinterviews.com.au. Each session is 20 minutes, with up to six students assigned to each timeslot.

To book your session for the Student Showcase and make an appointment with your child’s teacher for parent teacher interviews, please go to www.schoolinterviews.com.au. Please note that you will be required to book two separate sessions - one for the Showcase this term and one for the Parent Teacher Interviews in Term 3.

Student Showcase: Tuesday 27th June - Booking code: jqhr8
Parent Teacher Interviews: Wednesday 19th July and Tuesday 25th July - Booking code: wju5p
