O.M. MacKillop P.S. is named after the late Oliver M. MacKillop, a former Public School Inspector for the northern part of York County, who resided in Richmond Hill.  Mr. MacKillop was a great student of English literature.  He loved children and it was his desire that the teachers should inspire in their pupils a love of learning.  During his many years of service Mr. MacKillop made an outstanding contribution to both elementary and secondary education in the province. Our school insignia is the mustang. In 2005 O.M. MacKillop celebrated its 50th anniversary.


O.M. MacKillop P.S. was officially opened in 1955.  A new library was placed on the original school in 1989. Over the years, classrooms have been converted in an attempt to accommodate the increase in population and the advancement of school program.  At various times, a maximum of eight portables have been utilized. Full Day Kindergarten classrooms were constructed in 2011.


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.
