Our Story

St Mary MacKillop Primary School has a relatively recent history, having been established in 1983 following parent and parish requests for a second Catholic school to service the rapidly expanding suburb of Penrith South. 

St Mary MacKillop opened its doors for the first time to 460 pupils on 31 January 1984 and is currently a two stream school which draws its population from areas such as Orchard Hills, Jamisontown, Kingswood and South Penrith. St Mary MacKillop has a school population of over 400 students representing close to 300 families.

The site selected for the school gives a clear view to the Blue Mountains.  Being a sloping block, much earth was moved to form the playground and the buildings area.  Atop the playground is the very large Morten Bay Fig, which figures proudly as the symbol of the school, and has the motto, 'Together We Grow' printed below it.  

The foundation principal was Sr Anne Cooper rsj, a member of the Josephite Order.  The school took on the name of the founder of this unique Australian congregation, St Mary MacKillop. 

Being dedicated to the memory of Australia's first saint, Mary MacKillop Primary has a clear Josephite tradition.  Feast days around Mary, her parents St Joachim and St Anne, and St Joseph, are celebrated annually.  There is also a strong bond with the Josephite sisters at the Mary MacKillop Institute for East Timorese Studies.  This connection gives the students a first hand knowledge of the plight of a people in need as they work to support them in their own unique ways.

The school forms part of the St Nicholas of Myra parish community located in Penrith.

We are strongly supported by our Parish Priest, Father Chris de Souza, through liturgical celebrations and his presence at many of our school events and meetings.

St Mary MacKillop Primary has a high profile in the wider Penrith South area with a reputation of high standards and educational excellence.
