Dear Families

First, congratulations to all of our students who represented our school last Friday at District swimming. It was a great day of competing, with our Fatima students making us proud, especially with the cheering and support given to each other! Also, a big thank you to the family members, staff and Mr Koole for supporting us in making this experience possible.

Catholic Education Week will run from Sunday 10 March to Sunday 17 March and is an opportunity for all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to celebrate their Catholic identity, the pivotal role they play within their local community and the strength of the sector.
