DREAM of possibilities.
Happy Kids, Happy Teachers, Happy Parents!
A Warm Welcome Awaits You
Dear Parents, Guardians and Families.
I am delighted to welcome you to Our Lady of Fatima, a small Catholic Primary School dedicated to providing a high quality and holistic education in a welcoming, inclusive and supportive environment.
Through our staff, location and physical resources, we believe that we offer a unique primary school program where students can excel
academically and socially while establishing an important foundation for secondary school years and beyond.
With an extensive campus, Our Lady of Fatima offers modern, purpose built learning spaces with extensive playgrounds and sporting fields,
located on a quiet street frontage that provides a sense of privacy and security for our students and families.
With a rigorous teaching program, our staff hold a common vision of academic success for all students, where teaching capabilities and
relationships are nurtured to support students’ academic results, spiritual development and wellbeing.
With a focus on building the highest possible level of care and trust between students, teachers and parents, we place ‘learning’ at the
centre of every day’s activities, while ensuring that a strong sense of community and friendship is maintained.
Through our mantra of: dream, believe, achieve, we establish in our students a strong sense of the importance of goal setting and hard
work in order for students to achieve their dreams, whatever they may be.
Whether you choose Our Lady of Fatima for the standard of teaching; its dedicated staff; campus resources or location, I genuinely believe
that we can offer your child an environment where they will be happy, and able to achieve at their highest possible level.
I look forward to welcoming you into our school community and sharing your child's educational journey with you.
Why Choose Our Lady of Fatima?
A well rounded education, delivered in a happy and supportive environment.
OUR STUDENTS SAY
"I call it My Lady of Fatima because it is MY school"
