Our Lady of Fatima School Rosebud

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.


Community News.......

Next term we are starting a new initiative to invite parents to meet with the Principal and Deputy in an informal setting. We have arranged the Café2U van to come along and the school will provide some afternoon tea. Our Parents in Partnership meetings have a very small core of faithful attendees but this model does not seem to suit the majority of our community, so we are looking for an alternative way to connect and to allow parent voices to be heard. All welcome to come along. We have two dates set next term: Thursday 9th October (first week 4th Term) & Thursday 13th November @ 2:30pm

Yesterday our Athletics Team competed against other schools in a carnival at Truemans Road. Well done to everyone for their participation and congratulations to the students who will go on to compete at the next level.

Athletics Day

We had the best turn out ever for Fathers Day. Thanks to all the dads/special friends who came along to share breakfast and games with their children. It was a beautiful morning, many thanks also to Mrs. O'Sullivan for her behind the scenes organisation and all the school staff who came to school early to cook the bacon and eggs, serve the cereal, fruit and cuppa's, organize the games and clean up before class. This annual event just gets better and better every year.

Next April marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand Troops at Anzac Cove. This brings a further renewal to the significance of Anzac Day 2015 and as such the event will be commemorated in special ceremonies across the country. The Anzac Centenary Committee asked for submissions from community organizations with their ideas to mark the occasion and pay tribute to the men and women who made those sacrifices. We put in an application to commission a work of art and have been awarded a grant to assist bring the idea into a reality. We have commissioned Mark Basford to complete a work which addresses the theme of:

Thanks to the Anzacs of the past we can Dream Believe and Achieve today.

In the lead up to Anzac Day 2015 our students will work towards an art show which will feature their own tributes and reflect their dreams for the future. Any adults in our community who would be interested in sharing their art work at this event next April will be very welcome to participate.
