On December 9, 1959, Mrs. George Galbraith and Mrs. Lorne Rogers organized the Hugh Beaton Home & School Association. The first meeting was held in January, 1936, with Mrs. Agnus MacMillan as president. Over the years, Hugh Beaton Home and School Association has supported school programs and activities through their fundraising activities. More recently, the formation of the Hugh Beaton School Council has formalized the process of parental involvement. The council, comprised of parents, administration, teachers and support staff, work together to support and enhance the goals of our school. Hugh Beaton's student population now stands at approximately 340 students. Our school motto is "Do Your Best To Be Your Best". Through the spirit of cooperation and communication, our parents and our staff have and will continue to support our students to do their best to be their best.
