Fine Arts Night
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Greetings new students!
This week's blog is all about Fine Arts Night. By now, you should have received your invitation in the mail, and we look forward to welcoming some of you to the school on May the 14th.
Fine Arts Night is a great chance to see all of the artistic talent of our Luther students -- there will be performances and displays representing students from all grades, 9-12.
It is a celebration of the arts within our community, which we believe is a really important part of being a Luther student -- it's not just about academics! This is a great opportunity to get a feel for what our students do and what it's like to be a Luther student.
Here is a sampling of the events and displays you can find at Fine Arts Night:
- One Act Play performance
- Band performances
- Visual art and photography displays
- Choir and singing performances
- Student films
If that wasn't enough, new students who attend will have the chance to enter in a draw for a Luther hoodie!
There will be snacks and refreshments for purchase.
Please arrive at the West Entrance (off of Dewdney Ave) -- NOT Royal St, as those doors will be locked.
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, May 14th at 7 pm!
