Dear Parents and Guardians,

The start of a new year is always exciting for both parents and students. We hope this new school year is the best school year of your life. It will be filled with many challenges. With open communication between home and school, we can overcome all challenges and enjoy the many successes that we will share.

We would like to welcome all our new families coming to Our Lady of Fatima School and of course welcome back all of those families that were with us last year. We hope that the experiences your child encounters during this year will enhance his/her intellectual, physical, social and spiritual growth.

As a staff, we are committed to provide a quality Catholic education to your child. Together in partnership between home and school, our children will grow and succeed according to their individual needs. Working together, the home and school can form an effective team.

We look forward to working with you and invite you to be involved with your child's education. Please feel free to contact the school at any time, should you have any concerns or questions.

Privacy Advisory

Our families and staff enjoy opportunities to share some of their activities with parents and the school community through teams, clubs and special events. Many of these are ‘memory making’ for families and as such, photographs and videos are often taken.

We ask that families exercise their discretion when taking photographs or videos at school events and consider the privacy of other students who may also be present in those pictures. We would appreciate if families not upload images of students other than their own to the Internet (e.g. YouTube or Facebook). Your cooperation with this request is appreciated.
