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.

This is what we did:

  • We watched a BTN clip http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4464750.htm on the dairy Industry. It showed us how the farmers are struggling to make money due to the price of milk in supermarkets. Water is often more expensive than milk.
  • Next we listed all the major dairy products. We came up with: milk, cream, ice cream, yogurt, custard, cheese, butter, chocolate.
  • We surveyed our class on who had dairy for breakfast and who has a dairy product in their lunch. We showed our results as a pie graph and used the information to show a fraction in its simplest form.
  • We came up with lots of cool names for our cow.
  • We researched areas of the dairy industry such as: How a cow makes milk. Why does a cow have 4 stomachs? Different breeds of milking cows. What are the benefits of dairy products in our diet? How does a calf drink milk?
  • Most of us made little movies of our discoveries. These were presented to the class.

Picasso Cow

We have really enjoyed having the Picasso Cow in our room.
