South African Dancers Share Culture and Hope

The Kliptown Youth Project (KYP) dancing troupe visited Concordia for a full day of traditional South African singing, dancing, and culture sharing. Each Concordia elementary school class had a chance to meet with the dancers individually to learn more about the group’s purpose as well as join in on some great dancing and music.

KYP’s founder, Thulani Madondo, was named by CNN as one of their 2012 ‘Heroes’ of everyday people changing the world, as KYP helps youth of Kilptown, SA rise out of poverty.

“I liked the gumboot dancers because they taught us how to dance. It was cool that they made their own music with their boots, hands and their drum.” - Bella, Grade 3

Volleyball Tournament

For the first time in Concordia HISTORY both our high school varsity volleyball teams were in the championship for the gold.

Our 1st ranked boys squeaked by 4th ranked Hanoi International School 25-21, 26-28, and 15-10 to take them into the championship game with UNIS. While the game proved to be a fierce one, in the end our boys took the 2nd place trophy for the tournament. Our 3rd ranked girls team beat the 2nd ranked Hanoi International School team to get them into the championship game. Their might and resilience saw them through to a final victory over UNIS to take the CHAMPIONSHIP trophy for our Hanoi Activities Conference. Well done to both teams and GO THUNDER!
