Our Lady of Fatima is blessed with a dedicated staff of caring professionals who value the students entrusted to them.

Along with the Principal and Deputy Principal there are eleven Class Teachers, one ASD Support Teacher, twelve Special Needs Assistants, a part-time Home Economics Teacher, a part-time Art Teacher, a Secretary, a School Aid and two Caretakers. The school also offers speech therapy for those students who require it. We also have the invaluable services of volunteers who help out in our classrooms.

Our Lady of Fatima School was founded in 1968 to facilitate the needs of children with a learning difficulty.

Since its inception it has grown from strength to strength. Over hundred students attend this school from all over the county and range in age from 4 to 18 years.
