Our Faith

Students at Our Lady of Fatima are exposed to a curriculum embodied with principles and values of our Catholic faith.

During the school year, students, parents and staff share many opportunities to gather as a faith community at Our Lady of Fatima School and at Holy Name of Jesus Church.

School Liturgies and prayer services are celebrated on a regular basis.

In planning and delivering the curriculum to our students, School staff bear in mind The Vision of a Catholic Learner, as set-out by The Institute For Catholic Education.

Vision of a Catholic Learner

Catholic Learners:

Vision of a Catholic Learner

  • are discerning believers formed in the Catholic Faith community who celebrate the signs and sacred mystery of God's presence through word, sacrament, prayer, forgiveness, reflection and moral living.
  • are effective communicators who speak, write and listen honestly and sensitively, responding critically in light of Gospel values.
  • are reflective, creative and holistic thinkers who solve problems and make responsible decisions with an informed moral conscience for the common good.
  • are self directed, responsible lifelong learners who develop and demonstrate their God-given potential.
  • are collaborative contributors who always find meaning, dignity and vocation in work which respects the rights of all and contributes to the common good.
  • are caring family members who attend to family, school, parish and the wider community.
  • are responsible citizens who give witness to Catholic social teaching by promoting peace, justice and the sacredness of human life.
