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.

One sure way to feel part of our community is to join in one of the various parent groups. I include again the opportunities for you to become involved. There is still time and room in all groups for more people to join. Activities which need willing workers now include: Art Show, Mother’s Day Stall and our Irish Night. These events are coming up in April and May so we need to get a move on the organization. If you are willing to assist in any way, please check the accompanying contact list and be in touch with the relevant person.

Last week we said goodbye to Harold , Suzie and the Life Education Van. The teacher Suzie was very sincere in thanking the students and teachers for the respect, friendship and welcome provided. Suzie loves coming to Fatima every second year. Harold was pleased to be able to stay and present awards at assembly last week.

This week, Artist – Mark Basford visited all Year 4,5 and 6 Art Classes to share information and gain student input on the commissioned art work for the commemoration of the ANZACS. Mark is well underway with the mural which will be unveiled at the launch of our Art Show on Friday April 24th. We would love to welcome any parents who would like to exhibit some work in the Art Show. If you are interested in exhibiting or sharing your work with our students in Art Classes email our Visual Arts Teacher Gayle Timmer at gtimmer@fatimarosebud.catholic.edu.au Gayle works at Fatima on Monday, Tuesday and Friday.

Chris Killey returns to work with our Prep students and with all teachers on Spelling. Chris has developed an innovative spelling program which is getting great results and we are delighted to have her here at Fatima.

Cath Epstein is a Maths Consultant who works for the Catholic Education Office. Cath will be visiting on a regular basis across the year to work with teachers on Mathematics planning and classroom delivery.

Phil Hellisma from Padua will be visiting our Year 5 classes next Tuesday 3rd March to deliver enrolment packs for 2017. Phil and his team will share information about Padua and answer questions from our students.


The children loved meeting Harold from the Life Education Van last week. Each class visited the van where they were exposed to some exciting learning.
