Principal’s Message

Welcome to Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School Fairfield, a three and four-stream co-educational Catholic school renowned for its welcoming, inclusive community and tradition of educational excellence. 

We place a strong emphasis on the teaching of literacy and numeracy which is supported by a contemporary learning environment rich in technological resources. The school recognises the individuality of learners, including the needs of gifted learners and those from a language background other than English. 

Our dedicated professional teaching and support staff work collaboratively to ensure each child receives the best educational program for their needs. Differentiated learning programs and a variety of sporting and co-curricular opportunities are offered.

The school is committed to working in partnership with parents and the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary in the development of the whole child, to nurture students as they grow in faith and develop their full potential as lifelong learners. We aim to do this in a caring, safe, secure and supportive environment with strong pastoral care programs based on wellbeing, justice, relationships and resilience.

May God bless you and your family.

Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School Fairfield was established in 1928 and staffed by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart until 2000. Originally founded on Weston Street, the school moved to its present site in 1992. Following major construction and refurbishment projects from 20072010, the school continues to expand and revitalise its facilities to create a vibrant, modern learning environment. 

The Josephite charism, instituted by St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, is a proud part of the school’s heritage. The Sisters continue to have a presence in the school as staff members and help to enliven our students with the Josephite values. We continue to celebrate, historically, our multicultural Catholic community in close association with the Fairfield Parish.

  • Foster an active engagement between school, home, parish, and the wider community, which embraces our diversity.
