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.

CaricaturesBOOK WEEK
This week we join with schools all over Australia celebrating book week. Our Year 5 students have been reading short listed picture story books over the pubic address system each day while students eat their lunch. On 27th August we had illustrator Paul Harvey speak to all students about his work as an illustrator.

Student report: “We met Paul Harvey today. He showed us some of the caricatures he has drawn. He draws lots of people who play different types of sport. He drew a caricature of us it was amazing. He also drew caricatures of other children. He is very talented. Paul Harvey taught us that a caricature has three important parts:
1. Look like a person
2. Exaggerate the features
3. Show something about the person.
We really enjoyed Paul’s visit.”
By Kelly, Adam and Ryan Year 3

On Friday 28th students may come to school dressed as a character from a story book. We have a day of fun activities which includes a parade of characters at 9.15am which will be followed by fun activities in the classrooms with students in multi-age groups with other students from their house. In the afternoon there will be a quiz with questions about the characters and story lines about the shortlisted picture story books. It promises to be an exciting day.

Woolworths Earn & Learn is back and it is now easier than ever to earn valuable resources for your local primary school. Last year more than 14,500 schools and Early Learning Centres benefited from the program, boosting supplies in classrooms, libraries, music rooms, gymnasiums and science labs.

It's simple to participate.Until 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.


This is one of the highlights of the year. Students are invited to bring their dad, grandfather, father figure or special person to school for breakfast from 7.15 – 8.45 on Monday 7th September. Teachers will be up early that day cooking and serving a bacon and egg breakfast, which will be followed by a paper plane competition and outdoor games.

Our first round of interviews were completed last term and all families received letters over the school holidays. We will conduct our second round of interviews next month. Please spread the word to any friends, neighbours or relatives who have children looking to start at Fatima next year. Enrolment forms are available from the office and all local preschools.
