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.

FOOTY DAY - Friday 9th September – COME ALONG AND JOIN IN THE PARADE 9.15 am
The day Mrs. O'Sullivan looks forward to all year is almost upon us. Tomorrow 9th September is Footy Day at Fatima. Mrs. O has been working hard to make sure the Footy Day Parade will be even more fun than in past years (if that is possible). For many of our students this is a real highlight of the year. The day begins with them being able to cheer, laugh, hi-five their friends and build new alliances across the school. Students may wear their favourite team colours for a gold coin donation and have the option of ordering a Hot Dog for lunch. We use funds raised on this day to continue our support of needy students overseas who would not otherwise receive an education. All proceeds from the hotdog lunch along with the gold coin donation will be added to our fundraiser. The fun begins at 9.10am when we will assemble in the hall for the parade of teams. Parents are welcome to join us.

                              Footy Day

A group of Year 4-6 students have been working hard in learning time and lunchtimes to complete the painting of our Picasso cow. Beryl will be lacquered with a clear sealer this weekend. Next Friday we will send off photographs of our completed cow and a digital journal. Showing evidence of our F-Yr6 learning to Dairy Australia for judging. Cross all fingers and toes!! All children will have the opportunity to place a thumbprint on Beryl to symbolize their contribution. On Wednesday 5th October, Beryl, 10 students and myself will head up to Bon Beach for the Picasso Cow Presentation Day. Here the winning cow will be announced and we get to see the other school's interpretations of the Picasso Cow Project.


Be sure to reserve either Monday 5th December or Wednesday 7th December on your calendar. These are the dates we have booked the Rosebud Cinema for the showing of our class films. There will be two sessions screened on each evening to ensure all families have the opportunity to attend. You will be able to book the session which best suits your family as we get closer to film night.

Students have been learning their scripts, rehearsing their lines and meeting with Bruce Grantford our film director on a weekly basis. Filming starts next week for students in 6P and 5V. Parent helpers will be needed on filming days to assist with make up, costumes and props.

Please check your class emails as the date approaches and teachers will let you know what is needed. On their class filming day students wear their costume to school.

Please see the current newsletter for dates.

See the newsletter for lots more photos and all the results.
