The Spirit of Hugh John Macdonald
Hugh Macdonald students are hopeful, caring, connected citizens who imagine a more peaceful, equal and healthy community and world.
Big enough to learn and teach, small enough to care.
Starting in 2011-2012, we have been designated as the only junior high in the province to receive the designation as a Community School by our province.
As a community school, we have reached out and partnered with a wide spectrum of community partners to enrich the learning of our students. An example of this partnership is our work with the Manitoba School Improvement Program in offering the Peaceful Village, which extends the school day for all interested students from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. every day of the week.
