St. Gregs was well represented at the second annual X STREAM Games and Expo, Sunday, December 6, 2015 at St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute. We had robotics and science scrimmage teams participating for awards. Our arcade academy won ribbons and we had a wonderful display of activities our children have been involved in this year. The Bishop came and viewed activities and spoke with many students, including our own, about their projects.
