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.

WALK FOR AUTISM
Year 3/4/5/6 students enjoyed their visit from Greg Hunt last week when he called in to Fatima on his walk around the electorate raising awareness and funds for Autism. Greg spoke to the students for half an hour. He shared news of his work with endangered species. Many students were keen to share their understanding and concerns with Greg. The talk then shifted to a focus on Autism – Greg talked about some of the world’s most successful people who have Autism and also some of the challenges it can present. He shared a video to help increase understanding and took questions from students before continuing on to visit more schools on his way to Point Nepean. We raised $425 in support of Amaze (Autism Victoria) and Abacus Centre in Hastings.

It's simple to participate. From Wednesday 15th July to Tuesday 8th September 2015, when you shop at Woolworths you can collect Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers from the checkout operator or through an online order and place them on a Woolworths Earn& Learn Sticker Sheet. There'll be one Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent. Once completed, simply place the Sticker Sheet in the Collection Box, either in the school office or at your local Woolworths. Your school can then redeem your Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers for valuable education resources.
