Grade 9 Outdoor Education Experience!

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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 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. 

Greetings future students! 

This week's blog features information about our grade 9 outdoor education camp, which happens on the first weekend after school starts. 

The hope is that this outdoor educational experience will be a chance for students to build community and make lasting connections with each other. This will also be an amazing opportunity to engage with the natural world, learn some new skills, and have a lot of fun! 

Some example activities include:

  • team building exercises
  • group wide games
  • swimming
  • canoeing
  • kayaking
  • outdoor cooking
  • hiking
  • beach games
You'll also learn about the Qu’Appelle Valley Ecosystem, learn about the history of the region, gain 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 student counselors. 
 
We believe that the immersive setting of summer camp provides an unparalleled opportunity for new students to make friends and start their high school career off right!
