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.

There are so many good things happening at school at the moment including the Art Show which features work from every student, Reconciliation Preparation for Year 3 and the Circus Program which is now into its second week. In addition to these exciting projects for our children, we have the Mother’s Day Mass and Morning Tea next Friday, followed by the Irish Hooley Night on Saturday. You have only 2 afternoons left to visit the Art Show – so if you have not already been along please make sure you do so before Friday (1st May). The children’s work is amazing.

Last week Bishop Peter Elliott visited us to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation for our Year 6 students. He stayed on for the Friday and visited classrooms and the Art Show. His impressions of the student work, the school in general and the welcome he received was all very positive. Well done to our student leaders for The Arts – Josie and Charlotte, who took Bishop Elliott on a tour of the art work and explained the themes behind the various pieces on display. It was wonderful to hear these leaders who are passionate about their own artwork be able to share their knowledge so confidently.

Art Show

We held a very moving ceremony at school last Friday to honour the spirit of the Anzacs on the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. Our special guests included Mr. Bruce Turner – President of the RSL, Mr. Ken Northwood – President of our Parish Council and Colonel in the Australian Army, Mr. Martin Dixon – Local Member of Parliament, and Mr. Mark Basford – Artist who created the art work which now hangs on the wall outside 1/2FM. Mr. Greg Hunt sent his apologies. Thank you to all the parents who came along to the assembly and stayed on for the Art Show. Thank you especially to our Year 3 and 4 parents who provided and served the afternoon tea. Our hard working teachers and a small group of parents did a magnificent job of setting up the display, which includes a tribute to Paula Duff who began the work with students in 2014. On behalf of the community, I thank Gayle Timmer for the drive, vision and commitment to see this project through to completion.

The School Development Parent meeting was held last week. If you are interested in reading the minutes from this meeting they are available in the menu under News & Events (or there are hard copies in the office).
