The Mission of Our School

Know about the world around us.
Our school insignia is the mustang.
MacKillop P.S. is located on a long, narrow six acre site bound by housing on the north and south sides of the property and with a park at the west end. In partnership with the Town of Richmond Hill, a small adventure playground was constructed at the front, south side of the school, for student/community use. Our proximity to the Mill Pond offers many unique opportunities for outdoor and environmental experiences.
The school has a bus loop. Large and small buses, as well as private vans use the bus loop before and after school. Parking space is limited. Parents and visitors are asked to use caution when entering the school lot at these times. Students are dismissed from their classes through doors at the sides and instructed to walk through the school yard to a safe exit facilitated by the teachers on bus duty or the crossing guards.
Large and small buses, as well as private vans use the bus loop before and after school to transport students to and from home and day care facilities.
