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.

Tuesday 25th April is a public holiday to honour ANZAC DAY. Our school will join the march in Rosebud. Any students who would like to join in the march are asked to assemble in school uniform, meeting under the school banner on the corner of Nepean Highway and 9th Avenue at 9.15am on Tuesday. There will be a short march to the corner of Nepean Highway and Jetty Road where the formal ceremonies will take place. The ceremonies should conclude at approximately 10.30pm. All welcome. Anzac badges are for sale in the office for a gold coin donation.

To start the term the students have been fortunate to have a visit from Andrew Plant – Author Illustrator. Andrew has visited each year level and shared insights into the work required to produce a picture story book. Andrew has a website which you might like to visit. http://www.andrewplant.com His book 'The Poppy' would be of great interest to any family who has relatives involved in the battlefields of France during the first world war. He has many other children's books – many about animals which the younger students would enjoy.

May 13th is the 100 year anniversary of Mary's first appearance to a small group of children in Fatima Portugal in 1917. Mary appeared on the 13th of each month from May to October. This makes the year a very significant anniversary, which we will celebrate with the Parish. Details of upcoming events will be notified via the newsletter. There will be a special school and parish mass held on Friday 12th May at 9.30am to mark the significance of Mary's first appearance where she asked that we pray for world peace. All are welcome to attend.


We are now taking enrolments for 2018. Enrolment packs will be in pre schools and child care centres commencing next week. They are also available from the school office. We aim to have all enrolments in by the end of June and will conduct interviews to welcome students and families in the first weeks of term three.
