Luther College Act 2018 & Bylaws

Did You Know?

  • Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!

  • The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.

  • The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.

  • The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.

  • The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

  • In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.  

  • The International Baccalaureate provides an enriched curriculum that both covers and extends beyond regular Saskatchewan curricula in its depth and detail. It emphasizes the development of the necessary critical skills that university-bound students need to master: reflecting, inquiring, thinking, analyzing and evaluating.

  • Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.

Luther College Act 2018 & Bylaws

On December 5, 2018, Luther College’s new Act received Royal Assent in the Saskatchewan legislature. The new Act was prepared by the Luther College Board of Regents and approved by the College’s membership at the national convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC). There are no significant changes for the College’s operations except that the College’s corporate membership will now be drawn from current and past regents, local church representatives, students, parents, faculty and staff of the College. Also, the College’s annual general meeting will be convened at the College instead of being part of the national assembly of the ELCIC. The Act has also been revised in other ways to reflect best governance practices. Anyone interested in becoming part of the corporate membership of the College is invited to contact the President’s Office at 1-306-206-2099.
