Did You Know?
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 first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Hi, we are Lauren and Stefanie and we are the leaders of peer support for the 2017/2018 school year. We both have been at Luther since grade 9 and have been peer support members for 2 years. Peer support is a group of grade 10-12 students who are committed to making Luther safe and welcoming. We provide student support, advice, and guidance. If you ever have any questions about your classes, Luther traditions, or anything in general, feel free to ask us. We can't wait to see you on Orientation Day!

P.S. There is a closed Facebook page for grade 9 students. It will be monitored by us, along with two teacher supervisors to provide a space for you guys to get to know one another (especially over the summer) and ask us questions about Luther life. The group is called LCHS grade 9s (2017-2021)
