Did You Know?

  • 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 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

Health Services

The nurse’s office is open each morning from 7:30-11:30. The nurse provides health education, counseling, health assessments on students who are ill and emergency care for students and staff.

Please advise the nurse if your child has any serious health problems at the start of the school year. In the event of a serious illness or injury, the student will be transported to the hospital and the parent or guardian will be notified immediately.

Day students are encouraged to carry with them any medication that is used on a regular or occasional basis and administer it to themselves. For times when a student needs an over-the-counter medication and has none available, students will be redirected to the school nurse during the nurse’s office hours. The nurse will contact the student’s parent or guardian as permission is required to administer any medication. Student who require medication after 11:30 when the nurse is not available will need to contact their parents to be dismissed from class or to bring medication.

Dorm students who become ill at school should see the nurse or find the on duty dorm staff. Over-the-counter medication will be administered for minor illnesses according to the standing orders from the school’s physician. Referrals for medical appointments will be booked by the nurse.

eHR Viewer is a secure provincial (eHealth) electronic database that the nurse may use to retrieve medical information on a student regarding prescribed medication, laboratory or medical test results, clinical encounters with a physician or hospital, immunizations and chronic disease management. Dorm students are under the nurse’s care therefore this database may be accessed to provide comprehensive medical care.  For day students, parents will be contacted for permission to access their child’s file in eHR Viewer if needed for immediate care. If you need further information regarding the nurse’s access to your child’s confidential medical history please contact the school nurse.
