Peer Support Program

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.

  • 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 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 first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!

  • 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.  

  • 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!

  • 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.

Peer Support Program

The Peer Support Progam is a student led group with the goal of supporting each member of the student body throughout their academic and personal endeavors. The Peer Support group meets regularly to discuss the prevalent issues facing students today and to further their skills as empathetic listeners and problem solvers. 

  • Assertiveness skills training
  • Being responsible to, and not for, others
  • Dealing with crisis situations
  • Effective listening
  • Problem-solving
  • Referrals
  • Trust and confidentiality
