|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.
On Friday morning 24th October, all students will be part of the audience for our visiting performers from Jally Entertainment who are presenting 'Goldilocks Rocks'. This is an interactive, live theatre performance which runs for about 50 minutes. The show has toured Australia visiting many schools over the course of the year and we are fotrunate to be the last stop on the 2014 tour. We are looking forward to offering this opportunity for our students to share in the experience to see a live performance ... particularly as they are preparing for their own live production as part of the Christmas Concert.
The storyline explores the topic of bullying through the actions and reactions of the various characters. The anti-bully message and various strategies presented in the show will be followed up through further work in classrooms.
A huge thank you to Bruce Turner who hosted our Year 6 students' visit to the RSL last week. The students were made very welcome and returned to school with a renewed understanding of the history and role of the RSL in supporting returned soldiers. They were able to examine the military exhibitions, learn about the insignia, the uniforms, badges, medals etc. The group also met with a 92 year old war veteran who gave our students a real insight into the challenges and loss faced during the wars. The Year 5 students will visit next week.
