Film Night Contest

Did You Know?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

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!
