Omnia Sol- “Everywhere Light”

‘Omnia Sol’, which means “everywhere light” in Latin was the title for our most recent concert. Music for this concert focused on themes of hope, resilience, adventure, and joy. With music from the classical era, the romantic era, spiritual, gospel and jazz, (and a few favorite movie themes thrown in), Concordia students brought “light” to our Concordia and Hanoi community through their performance Friday.

A special thanks to Mrs. Nancy Durance, Concordia’s upper school music teacher and our music students in the middle and high school choirs & chamber ensemble orchestra for all their hard work in beautifully bringing this concert together.

HANOI’S MASJID AL NOOR

Dr. Nelson’s Comparative Religions class recently took their learning outside of the classroom. In the new elective course, students studied seven major world religions and compared them to discover similarities and differences. “The chance to visit a mosque and meet an imam in Hanoi was just too good of a comparative practice to pass up,” Dr. Nelson said. On any given Friday, 200-300 Muslims gather for prayer at Masjid Al Noor, the only mosque in Hanoi and northern Vietnam. On the Friday of their visit, students arrived just as the weekly prayer gathering dismissed. In their meeting with the imam and his wife, students learned that the Muslim presence

in Vietnam extends back about one thousand years. Indian traders brought the religion, and it found acceptance among the Cham tribal group in central Vietnam. There are over forty mosques in central Vietnam. The Al Noor mosque itself is one hundred years old. The imam spoke to the youth about Islam’s five pillars. He also answered their many questions about practicing Islam in Vietnam. On the drive back to the Concordia campus, students shared observations, such as: “The imam and his wife are Vietnamese, well educated, and soft spoken.” Dr. Nelson believes that the best way to break down divisive stereotypes is to meet and befriend people of different religions and cultures. “There is nothing like a friendship for helping us overcome misperceptions,” he said. His students experienced this truth first hand in their visit to Hanoi’s only mosque.

Unique Activities for Students

Did you know that Concordia has an ARCHERY and a GOLF club? There are many activities Concordia offers students. We thought we would mentioned some of our favorites! Spotted on campus, students swim as part of their regular PE curriculum. Students also enjoy fun after school activities like COOKING with Mrs. Sharpe. With so many fun things to learn and do on campus, it is no wonder that our students are some of the happiest you will meet. Keep a look out for more great activities coming next year!

Global CodeaThon

On Saturday, May 6th eight 4th & 5th Grade students represented Concordia at the Annual Global Codeathon, sponsored by UNIS Hanoi. Fifteen schools from around the world participated in this exciting event.

The Global Codeathon is a celebratory event open to anyone interested in coding. The main goal is to foster a love of coding and to collaborate with other young coders. The Codeathon provided an opportunity for young coders to meet and learn from one another. Concordia was also lucky to have two seasoned high school coders help in teaching the younger students about programming in both English and Vietnamese!

During the Codeathon, students were challenged to create video games and animations using Scratch. Other students built and programmed robots. The most exciting part was the Coding Slam, where students from each school shared their final projects in a one-minute presentation. Scott Chen, Grade 5, represented Concordia in the Coding Slam.

It was amazing to see such high levels of creativity and critical thinking from students in countries such as Tanzania, Uzbekistan, India and of course, Vietnam! Mr. Elliott and Mrs. Snider were extremely proud of our Concordia coders - 4th Graders: U-Hyeok Kwon, Mai Anh Pham, Thao Pham, Tim Leummens, Preston Badger, Chris Cho and 5th Graders: Scott Chen and Daniel Kim.

A huge thank you to Concordia middle schoolers Linh Pham and Jack Boone. Well done everyone and we are looking forward to another great coding event next year!

Elementary Music Concerts

TEN LITTLE LADYBUGS: PRESCHOOL- GRADE 1
Based on the book, “10 Little Ladybugs” by Melanie Gerth, our Concordia Preschool- Grade 1 students showcased their musical talent in this wonderful ‘ladybug’ themed concert.


GRADE 2-5 CONNECTED SHOWCASE
Music has a way of connecting people. In this case, music also made the jump of  connecting different subjects that the students are currently studying. To make this  performance even more intriguing, the rhythms, lyrics, and movements came about through input from the students themselves. This showcase of true creator talent made for a wonderful concert!

Preschool Shoe Project

Our Concordia preschooler students have inquired about all things SHOES. As part of their project learning, the students learned to make shoes from all sorts of materials, even paper and tape! The students learned how to repair shoes and more from local shoe aficionados. As a culmination of the project, the students wanted to know just HOW shoes are made so the classes visited one of the few remaining shoe makers in Hanoi.

HOW DOES OUR GARDEN GROW?

What better way to cultivate learning than through actually cultivating crops? Both our elementary and upper school students have  a chance to get their hands dirty in our school community garden.  

Both our preschool classes are  growing a variety of plants including radishes, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, melons, house plants, and herbs.  “Can you guess which is their favorite plant in the whole garden?” asks preschool teacher, Mrs. Elliott. “The weeds- some of the kids think they are the most interesting plants!” 

Next time you are on campus, why not take a peek at just how well our garden is growing?
