Grade 9 Camping Trip

Did You Know?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!

  • 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.  

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

Hello future students! 

This week's blog post is all about the grade 9 camping trip. This is the 3rd 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.
