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.

Last year Ibu Hani visited us from Indonesia and shared information about our sister school in Lombok. Ibu Hani spent time in classrooms providing our students with great insights into the lives of the students, their school and the region. This provided a meaningful context for our students studying Indonesian and there have been several communications back and forth between the schools including pen pal buddies established in Year 5. Next month I will be travelling to Lombok for a week to visit our school. Compared to us, the school has very little in the way of resources so as well as taking messages and news from our students, I would like to take some teaching resources to support their learning opportunities. Our November Fun Fair this year will be held on Friday 6th November from 2.00 – 3.30pm. Students from each class will be involved in a fun activity or mini stall with all proceeds raised going towards our sister school in Lombok.

Our Christmas Concert will be held on the evening of Thursday 10th December. There will be two shows and each show will include students from Prep – Year 6. We have grouped students so that siblings will be in the same concert. Details about ticket arrangements will be advised in mid November. We stage the concerts this way in two sittings in order to fit everyone into the hall and not have to restrict audience numbers.

Our next School Development Group Parent Meeting will be held on Wed 14th October at 7.00pm in the school library. At this meeting we will look at enrolment numbers and school structure options for 2016. We will also be sharing data from the recent surveys and aggregate information from NAPLAN results. All parents welcome.

The Parent Information Evening will be held on Wednesday 28th October at 7pm. 
Prep 2016 Orientation sessions will be conducted on the following dates: Wednesday 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th November 2015. All sessions will run from 9:15 to 12:30pm. It is recommended that the children attend all of these sessions if possible.
