According to Norma John, Manager of Business Development and Operations (East Malaysia) of AIM Smart Academics Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Smart Reader Worldwide, organising Chinese New Year events is a yearly agenda for Smart Reader Kids® East Malaysia Centres.

“Chinese cultural-related activities is important because it acts as a strong platform to instill the understanding and appreciation of one’s culture and tradition amongst young children,” she said.

Besides, these activities gave students the opportunity to interact between themselves and boost their self-confidence when performing in public. Lantern Word Guessing session also encouraged young children to improve their vocabulary knowledge through a creative, simple and fun way.
