Help the SRC!
Did You Know?
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 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 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.
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.
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.
My name is Luke Lumbard. I am in Grade 12 and I am the president of the Student Representative Council (SRC) here at Luther College High School.
As the SRC, we serve as the voice of the student body. One of our main roles is to organize student events – dances, fun days, pep rallies, intramurals and theme days. We also organize fundraising activities within the school, both for other charities, as well as for the school itself. I am writing to you on behalf of my fellow students to ask you to consider donating to the school.
Our school is a wonderful place. We have great teachers and strong academics. We have a close-knit community and lots of opportunity for students to be involved through co-curricular clubs, activities and athletics. We have great new facilities along with well-maintained historic buildings.
This year as an SRC we came up with a list of things we’d like to see purchased for the school to make it even better. Some of our ideas include: phone charging stations for the Student Commons, hand dryers in the bathrooms, more seating at the west entrance and wastebaskets for the parking lot.
We took these ideas to Dr. Anderson, the school’s Principal and Dr. Hillis, the school’s President, and they were supportive. They also suggested some additional items that the school was hoping to purchase that might be added to our list. These include: new stools for the art room, new books for the library, a bicycle rack for the west side of the school, new equipment for our sports teams, and other items for the math, science, music, and film departments.
As you can see there is no shortage of things to raise money for! You can find the 2018-19 Fundraising Priorities brochure on the school’s website. We hope you will consider making a donation to help the SRC and the school purchase some of these items!
In asking you, our parents, to donate, one of the things we wanted was for you to be recognized for your gifts. We think your generosity should be celebrated and has the power to inspire others. We also wanted to make sure you know how your money is being spent and to show you the impact of your gifts. All donations will be acknowledged in a Donor Report to Parents which will be sent out to all families later this year. If you prefer, you can make your gift anonymously by directing the Development Office not to list your name. Tax receipts are issued for all gifts.
If you can help with a donation of any amount it will be greatly appreciated. We hope every family will participate. Which items we purchase will depend on how much we raise! But regardless, all money raised will be used to purchase items that support and benefit students each and every day!
