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.
