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.
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.
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.
Luther College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations.
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.
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.
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.
Students must be 15 years of age to enroll in Driver Education. Students must have completed the Driver Education authorization form and have obtained an SGI customer number prior to the start of their session in order to be eligible to take the class.
Sessions typically run Monday to Friday, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Classroom 111. Please note all sessions are 30 hours in length as mandated by SGI and students must complete 6 hours of driving time. There is no cost.
Sessions fill up very quickly on a first come, first serve basis. There is a limit of 30 participants per session. Students who sign up for a session but do not attend, nor notify the office of their withdrawal, may be subject to a $500 fee posted to the student’s account and may be ineligible to register in subsequent driver education sessions.
Luther College reserves the right to cancel or alter dates for Driver Education sessions in order to ensure there are enough students in each session.
