This year marks the 14th Anniversary of the Fatima Old Boys' All-Inclusive fete which

will be held tomorrow at the college from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Music will be supplied by Roy Cape All Stars, featuring Blaxx, Tizzy, and Ricardo Drue, Dil-e-Nadan, Bunji, Fay Ann and the Asylum, Farmer Nappy Red Boyz and the Flick. Other artistes include Ultimate Rejects featuring MX Prime, Lyrical, Sekon Star, Peter Ram and much more

The St James Tripolians Steel Orchestra (1972) will be closing off the fete with sweet pan music. Patrons can be assured of a number of dishes from 34 Food Stations (they'll even feed as you leave) and top of the line alcoholic beverages. For the ladies who wish to change from heels to flat footwear, we have made the necessary arrangements so that they can leave their heels in our care and collect them at the end of the fete.

Security will be provided for vehicles. The funds raised from the 'Exhale' fete will be channelled towards education, sport and developmental programmes in the college to ensure that Fatima College remains tops. In 2011 the funds were used to construct a mezzanine in the College Hall so that the college's 900 population could be accommodated, in 2012, the College Library was totally refurbished, and the Pavilion on the College grounds was also refurbished.

In 2013 there was constructed a two storey block, to accommodate our form VI pupils, costing over $4.3 million. In 2015, we inducted 53 “Old Boys” into our first Hall of Achievers, and also installed Smart Boards in every classroom.
