After School Activities (ASAs)

Concordia supports a dynamic after school program as a service to our community so that children have an opportunity to participate in enrichment programs not readily available in English in Hanoi. After School Activities (ASAs) provide opportunities for students in grades 1-5 that are meant to extend their learning and experiences, helping to teach the whole child. We desire to support children in the areas of sports, creative play, drama/performing arts, fine arts, cultural exploration, science and engineering, mathematics, literacy, life skills, and environment and nature education. Our program offers four six-week sessions on both Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school year.

Grade 4 Energy Study

Grade 4 is studying energy, starting with electricity.  Students gathered different components and were tasked with combining them into circuits, starting with a simple circuit that powered a single light bulb.  This progressed to engineering a parallel circuit that ran two items - like a motor AND a light bulb where the power could be switched between the two.

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
