Help the SRC!

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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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!

You can make your gift online or by returning the Parent Donation Form to the school. 

Sincerely,

Luke Lumbard
SRC President
