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.

Our film maker Bruce Grantford has issued scripts for each of the movies and will return each Wednesday for rehearsals. When the time comes to film each class, which will most likely be early next term, we will be asking for parent assistance with make up and costumes so please look out for this information via your classroom news. The children are very excited about the movie and their lines for the script. The movies will be screened at the Rosebud Cinema for student, parents and friends on the evenings of 5th and 7th December. Keep the dates free. More details will follow when we are closer to the date.

Picasso Cow visits playgroup

On Friday, 12th August our Choir will perform at assembly. The choir have been working with Dan Koole for some time and are now ready to perform for the school. We look forward to hearing them on Friday morning.

Our Picasso Cow has now visited all the classrooms and students have been doing some great work in class learning about the dairy industry and also coming up with designs to decorate the cow. A photographer from the Leader newspaper visited on Monday and we hope to see the story run in next week’s paper. Over the next few weeks the cow will be transformed as she is painted and prepared for entry into the competition.

BOOK WEEK 22nd—26th August

This years theme is ‘Australia! Story Country’. The students will be participating in activities and reading the selected books over this week and we will be concluding the week with our annual ‘Book Week’ parade and activity day on Friday 26th August.

The parents association is also conducting the Book Fair this year from 15th—19th August. Please add these dates to your calendar.
