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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Living at Luther
Luther College High School dormitory students benefit from being part of a small, safe, close-knit residence community. This supportive community enables students to grow both personally and in relationship with others. The dormitory program stresses respect for oneself, others, one’s surroundings, and learning. Out of these emphases grows maturity, independence, responsibility, and self-discipline.
Most rooms are double occupancy and come furnished with beds, desks and built-in closets. Washrooms are newly renovated. Resident students have access to a student lounge and wireless internet. All meals and snacks are provided in the Luther College High School Cafeteria.
The dorm program offers a variety of social activities for students such as movie nights, karaoke nights, outdoor camping, an annual ski trip, open gym time, games night and more.
A dean of men, a dean of women and several residence assistants supervise the dorm student’s seven-days-a-week. A school nurse is also available to students.
The lounge is a great place to hang out and spend time with friends while living in the dorms. With a big-screen television for movies and Nintendo Wii, air hockey, table tennis, a pool table and foosball, there’s something for everyone!
The cafeteria is a central place in Luther College High School, providing places to meet and study as well as a place to eat. The cafeteria staff prepares three meals a day, brunches on Saturday and Sunday, and afternoon and evening snacks for all dorm students. Dorm students are required to have breakfast in the cafeteria. We hope that a complete breakfast will allow students to perform well in class and in their daily interactions.
The Blue Room
The Blue Room is a formal reception room. Located in the girl’s dorm building, the space is open to all dorm students. The Blue Room is used for teas and receptions, as well as a place for dorm students to practice their piano, quietly read and study, or simply to spend time together.
