The Elementary School’s Winter Concert held on December 4th was full of excitement, skits, musical instruments and lessons about being special and being responsible. 5A started the show off with a humorous skit that shot laughter through the audience. 5B showed off their musical talent by starting off with We Wish You a Merry Christmas on their own instruments. Discovering your hidden talent was the theme of Arf!, performed by grades 1 and 2. Responsibility, perseverance, integrity and respect were the themes of Character Street, performed by grades 3 and 4.
Thanks to all the parents who supported the concert!

A total of 24 ASU seconadry students participated at the tournament. We had students participating in all 5 events: chess, math, badminton, ping-pong, and pool.
On Friday evening, of the three MS students participating in chess, two brought home medals–first and second place. The first place student defeated the HS champion from the English School to win the Grand Champion trophy for chess. Second place chess player was Saraalbuyan Munkhtur (grade 7). First place and grand champion was Temuulen Munkhbaatar.
Also on Friday evening, there were ASU MS and HS math teams competing. The MS team competed well answering five of the ten really difficult prompts correctly within the hour time limit. The HS team was third with seven out of ten correct in the hour long opening round and went on to the final round. Getting four out of five correct in the 30 minute final round, the ASU HS team, consisting of Udval Yun (grade 12), Khaliun Batjargal (12), Anar Amarsaikhan (12), Enkhtuvshin Doyodkhuu (12), and Min Jeong Choi (11), outpaced two Hobby School teams to take first place!
In Saturday’s competition our MS and HS competitors lost in early rounds in pool.
In ping-pong, our MS team finished fourth. AT the HS level, Altansukh Amarsaikhan (grade 12) teamed with a BSU student to win first place in the HS division.
In MS badminton, ASU fielded two teams with a third MS team competing in the HS division. All played well and had a good time. The MS team of Sung Min Han (7) and Tae Hoon Kim (7) swept through the MS brackets winning most matches easily to take first place. In a tightly contested match for the Grand Champion trophy, our young men outlasted the ISU HS team 27-25!
Congratulations to all who competed and represented ASU so well.
On October 21st, 2014, the ASU Speech and Debate Club made their debut this year at a Model UN debate event at the UN House in Ulaabaatar in honor of United Nations Week. The event – the first of its kind in Mongolia – was sponsored by the United Nations and the UB Debate Association. ASU students were mixed with debaters from other schools to debate issues of global importance. We look forward to another exciting year of Speech and Debate at ASU!
This year ASU held its first fall sports day, dubbed Outrageous House Games. The sports day is normally held only in the spring as a culminating event for the school year, but parents expressed interest in a fall sports day to help everyone in the school community get to know each other in a way that increases teamwork and opens communication. Coach Andy Zinck organized the event in which students gathered on the soccer field, where they participated in a variety of games and earned points for the Spirit Houses. More than 40 parents came out to the event and helped keep things running smoothly by assisting with the games, food and drinks, setting up and cleaning. Even the weather cooperated for a perfect day of fun and games.
