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.

Anzac Badges are for sale at the school office for a gold coin donation.

Congratulations to all children who have supported our lunchtime Project Compassion Campaign. Over a few lunchtimes children have eagerly made rainbow looms which have been sold each Friday during the season of Lent.
Without including our last day of sales we have raised a total of $275.00. Bracelets will be on sale for a gold coin again on Friday 4th April.
Each year the parish participates in the Combined Catholic Parishes Car Raffle as one of their major fundraisers. The money raised is essential for the upkeep of the church. Please do your best to sell a book over the holiday period to friends and family members. Each book contains 10 tickets at $2.00 each. This is a registered raffle and all books must be accounted for – so please keep them in a safe place and return to school sold or unsold by Thursday 24th April.
Please note – Our School could not exist without a viable parish so our support in this small way is very important.
The school photo day will be Friday 2nd May. All students should wear Winter school uniform – no runners or sports shirts. (Those student involved in sport that afternoon are to bring their sports shoes in their school bags)
