THIS WEEK AT CONCORDIA

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!

Celebrating Easter

Led by our middle and high school students, Concordia’s annual Easter assembly is a time for community and reflection on the true meaning of Easter.  Our entire school participated in a gathering in the new gym to sing and learn more about the story of hope and grace that are intertwined in this special day.

A powerful message was shared as the students sang lyrics by Matt Maher “no burden great can hold you down.” A huge thank you to our middle and high school choir for sharing through musical talent and the hope portrayed in their music.

Concordia Makes A Difference!

Walk-A-Thon 2017 by Student Writer, Gracie Byun

The Concordia Walk-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event that invites all of the Concordia community– students of all grades, the faculty members, and the loving parents. This year, Concordia collaborated with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, which is an organization in Vietnam that works with children in crisis. The Concordia students earned donations by asking their community members for sponsors to support them. Concordia’s overall goal for the donation is 125,000,000 VND to support Blue Dragon’s future charity projects to help the children that are in great need. This fun and influential tradition at Concordia not only builds community and promotes physical health, but also inspires students for service action.

Hanoi's First-Ever World University Fair

The first Concordia World University Fair was hosted on March 20. University admission representatives from about 30 universities around the world came to interact with students interested in learning about universities outside of Vietnam. After two sessions of various workshops, students made visits to the tables representing different universities. Students were engaged in conversations with the university admission representatives, as they asked questions and gathered information about the universities of their interest. With Concordia’s first graduating students this year, this event was significant because it showed how Concordia has strengthened in academic values. As Concordia is growing bigger in student body each year, more opportunities for students to be proactive in their own education are provided.

Da Lat Interim

The stunning City of Da Lat is often referred to as the garden of Vietnam due to the large amount of sought-after produce grown there, making it a cool and quiet retreat from the bustling capital city of Hanoi.  In the mountains of southern Vietnam, Concordia students engaged in an adventure course of orienteering, biking, trekking, and team building activities, in the mountains of south Vietnam.  The pine woods and mountainous surroundings were the perfect backdrop for fresh air, outdoor activities, and getting to know each other better.
