Public Meeting June 1st, 2019

How do we support children to embrace the Catholic faith and tradition in the culture of Australia today?

The Ballarat Frassati Group is a group of Catholic families working to open an independent primary school in Linton in 2020.

The Board of Directors of Our Lady of Fatima School (subject to VRQA approval) is excited to announce the integration of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd into our framework. Fitting seamlessly within the Classical Education framework that we have adopted for delivering a comprehensive curriculum, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd will be introduced progressively once the school launches.
Come along to our Public Meeting on SATURDAY, 1st June 2019 at St Patrick’s Cathedral Ballarat (MacKillop/Glowrey Rooms) from 2-4pm, to hear how we will teach children truth, goodness and beauty within the Australian National Curriculum, through the use of a classical education framework that focuses on the Trivium of grammar, logic and rhetoric. Dr Andy Mullins, renowned author, will be our guest speaker and will be presenting Parenting for Character, raising children of virtue. Our curriculum team will be presenting examples of what a Classical Christian education looks like and the School Board is excited about engaging in discussion with all attendees on the day. Afternoon tea will be provided. Looking forward to seeing you there!


Incoming Chair of the Board of Directors Vincent Sully wishes to acknowledge the recently ratified Board of Paul Casanova (Deputy Chair), Vincent Colla (Treasurer), Damian Meade (Secretary), Simon Colla, Simone Casanova, John Angheli, Christie Angheli, and Giacomo Angeli. The Board will be available at the Public Meeting on the 1st June to answer any questions you may have on plans for 2020 and beyond!
