National Sweater Day: Thursday February 6th, 2020 marks National Sweater Day. Canadians around the country are dropping the heat by 2-3 degrees and sporting a sweater to show that we care about how climate change is affecting our planet.

Here at St. Gregory the Great, we will celebrate National Sweater Day by wearing a tacky wacky sweater (in addition to their School Uniform) to school on February 6th!  So dig up those weird looking sweaters that you have pushed to the back of your closet and dust them off!!

February 13th – The Creation of Hope Orphanage in Kenya Civvies Day: On Thursday, February 13, St Gregory School will be celebrating love and kindness with a variety of special activities! Students are encouraged to wear red and pink tops with their uniform bottoms for a special spirit day. Many of our staff and students were inspired this fall when Canadian author Eric Walters spoke of the orphans in the Mbooni Region of Kenya, and the Creation of Hope orphanage that provides them with shelter, food, and care.

Uniform Policy: This is a reminder that we are a uniform school. Please follow the policy by ensuring students are in full ISW uniform, including sweaters. There is a hoodie available to our uniform choices for students to wear, along with the half zip and full zip sweater, for these colder months. Leggings and cargo/track pants are not school uniform bottoms. Thank you for your co-operation.
