Prairie Chic Shindig

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.  

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

Prairie Chic Shindig - 2018

On January 20, 2018, the Luther Parent Association will host their fourth annual fundraiser, Prairie Chic Shindig in support of Luther College High School.

Every year, Luther College parents plan an event that brings together the community of Luther parents, friends, faculty and alumni to raise funds and fun! Over the last three years, the parents have raised nearly $100,000 to support important projects around the school - furniture in the Student Commons, a new sound system in the Merlis Belsher Heritage Centre and upgrades to technology in the school!

This event will have a unique Saskatchewan theme and feature entertainment by local bluegrass and folk band Hummingbird Crossing, a prairie dinner, tequila tasting and more! (Remember last year's square dancing? It's back!)  We are raising funds to complete landscaping projects around the school.

Don your boots and join in the fun!

Buy your tickets now and pick them up at the door. Bring your PayPal receipt!
