As with each school in the York Region District School Board, O.M. MacKillop P.S. supports student learning through the curriculum standards set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education and many other co-curricular activities. Our school:
  • has identified increased numeracy achievement as a goal of our School Improvement Plan and is implementing a variety of strategies to support this goal.
  • promotes Modern Learning, and with the support of school council we have increased our technology tools and teacher training to further the learning and engagement of our students.
  • promotes a safe and supportive learning environment. This is done through the Board's Safe, Caring and Supportive Schools Policy and Procedures and the Character Education Initiatives. Our school’s “touchstone” gives focus for positive behavior and students are recognized monthly for demonstrating the attributes identified in our touchstone. Positive behavior is also acknowledged weekly as students have the opportunity to get “caught in the act” doing deeds that are respectful and responsible.
  • provides Special Education Programs in accordance with board policy. We work on an integrated model based on inclusion whenever possible for students with special needs. We have a Reading Recovery program in place as an early intervention strategy for grade one students.
  • enables English Language Learning students to have access to supports in their classroom.
  • has a variety of partnerships to support learning. We are fortunate to have community volunteers who provide supplementary reading support for primary students.
  • provides an opportunity for high school students to earn their community work hours while enhancing many of the programs at Mackillop P.S.
  • hosts teacher, ECE and CYW candidates from various colleges and universities
  • offers a healthy snack program supported by donations from area stores and community agencies.
  • offers a variety of extra-curricular and co-curricular sports and arts programs each year including but not limited to volleyball, basketball, art club, choir, eco-club, healthy schools club, cross country and track and field. 
  • Our Student Voice is made up of a group of student leaders with staff advisors who meet regularly and plan activities for our students including bully prevention assemblies, fundraising and global issues awareness.
