Grade 9 Camping Trip

Did You Know?

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.

  • 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.  

  • 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.

Hello future students! 

This week's blog post is all about the grade 9 camping trip. This is the 4th year we have offered students this opportunity to get outside, engage with the natural world, build community and make lasting connections with each other. Students always have an amazing time at this outdoor educational experience!

 

Throughout this 2 day adventure students will participate in a range of outdoor programming including team building exercises, group wide games, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, outdoor cooking, hiking, beach games, and more. They will also learn about the Qu’Appelle Valley Ecosystem, learn about the history of the region, and learn some handy outdoor survival skills. Students will stay in cabin groups divided by gender and will have supervision and leadership from both Luther teachers as well as grade 12 peer support student counselors.
