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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
Income Tax Information
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) information slips required for income tax purposes for certain scholarship awards or fees paid. The following is a summary of the information slips to be made available:
Tuition Fees - a Charitable Donation receipt will be issued to parents or guardians for a percentage of the school tuition fees paid.
Dorm Fees - dorm room and board fees for students aged 16 or less may qualify as child care expenses. The College will issue a letter to the student's parents or guardians detailing the room and board portions of the fees paid.
International Baccalaureate - A T2202A Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate will be issued to students taking Grade 12 International Baccalaureate classes for fees paid. These are recognized as Post- Secondary courses and are eligible for a tuition tax credit in the same way that university course tuition is eligible.
Scholarships - students who received a scholarship or some other form of financial assistance of $500 or more from the College will be issued a T4A Supplementary Income Statement.
If you have questions about your eligibility to use any of the above information slips which may be issued to you, please consult your tax advisor.
