Film Night Contest

Did You Know?

  • Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.

  • 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 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.

  • Luther College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations. 

  • Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium -  the largest high school gym in Regina.

  • 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.  

  • Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.

  • 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.

Greetings new students! This week's blog is all about Film Night, which is coming up soon: Wednesday, June 13th! Film showings begin at 7, and there will be a BBQ at 6, hosted by our current SRC. 

Luther College has one of the best high school film programs in the province, headed by our very own Mr. Willimott. We offer film classes starting in grade 10, which you can take all the way through grade 12 (including IB Film if you choose!). Our students produce their own films -- including writing, acting, directing and editing -- and are very proud to show them off every year. 

Film night is a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Luther's film students as a community and that's why we want to encourage new students to come out.

Like the Fine Arts Night last month, we have especially extended invitations to our incoming grade 9 students for Film Night, and there will be activities planned just for you, including games, prizes, and plenty of delicious food and drink -- so make sure you come out! 

In anticipation of Film Night, we are going to be giving out a $25 movie pass to a new student who can answer the following trivia question: What are the elements of film production covered in Film 20 (Communication Media -- Film 20)? Email your responses to julia.mitchell@luthercollege.edu before June 13th for a chance to win the movie gift card!
