Welcome to Concordiaville

Welcome to our community!  Our construction company of nineteen second graders (plus a few other very helpful hands) are delighted to show you the suburb of Concordiaville and the rural area that feeds it. Grade 2 students learned about working together as a team to create something magical as well as meeting Social Studies standards.  Concordiaville is quite a delightful place, equipped with a central park, houses, stores, a gas station, and of course, our very own multi-story school!

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

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.

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!
